Announcing the accreditation of Sprott Shaw College’s Medical Office Administrator with Practicum program.

The Canadian College of Health Information Management would like to announce the successful accreditation of Sprott Shaw College’s Medical Office Administrator with Practicum program.

Students in the Medical Office Administrator with Practicum (MOA-P) program at Sprott Shaw College gain the professional skills and knowledge through experiential learning, that leads to graduation in less than a year. Graduates are able to provide the necessary professional administrative support to medical professionals in hospitals, physicians, specialists’ offices, and any health authority in the province.

Sprott Shaw College graduates of the MOA-P program are eligible to write the Health Information-Certified Associate (HICA) national certification exam (NCE). Certification recognises health data as a key factor in providing safe and quality care to people across the country. Upon successful completion of all theory and practical components, students will be provided with exam preparation and will be eligible to write the exam. Students also receive a HICA student membership at the beginning of their training in this program.
