The transition to electronic health records creates job opportunities and training needs. As health care providers increasingly use electronic health records, new jobs will open up at electronic health record vendors, hospitals and medical practices. In addition, existing staff members in medical practices and hospitals will need to learn new skills to make decisions about, manage and use electronic health records.

We have included information about many of those programs within the sidebar menu. If you would like more information about a program, go to its website or reach out to the listed contact.
