New Digital Health Advanced Certificate program from BCIT

BCIT recently launched a new Digital Health Advanced Certificate program that aims to build digital-care capacity within the healthcare workforce to improve health outcomes across communities.

This Digital Health Advanced Certificate is aimed at post-diploma and baccalaureate healthcare students who are interested in expanding their knowledge, skills, and competencies toward the application of digital health/health informatics in the healthcare environment.

This innovative program will prepare students to successfully work in informatics roles, inform practice, shift culture, and create forward momentum on large-scale digital health initiatives in their places of work. Graduates will gain knowledge and skills related to the clinical translation of standards, technology, and information solutions across systems; the use and measurement of clinical data and outcomes; project management and collaborative change leadership.

A flexible, learner-centred, blended approach emphasizes participatory, discussion-based learning. Team-learning, and authentic assessments of industry-based projects ensure real world learning and the acquisition of interprofessional collaboration competencies. An equity-oriented focus and an active commitment to reducing health disparities puts the patient voice at the centre of the program.

This program is offered online using the part-time course-by-course registration model designed to offer maximum flexibility. The certificate can be completed in one year, or more gradually over 5 years.
