DSU to participate in Department of Commerce International Trade Administration Program
Dakota State University was recently invited to participate in the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) project funded by the Department of Commerce International Trade Administration’s Market Development Cooperator Program (MDCP), titled Increasing U.S. Exports and Jobs through the Creation of Health Information Management Education and Workforce Standards.
Through DSU’s involvement in the project, faculty of the Health Information Management (HIM) Programs will take part in the AHIMA International Student Recruitment Committee with other college and university participants, and have access to global curriculum standards as developed by the Global Healthcare Workforce Council.
“There will be a number of recruitment activities related to increasing the number of international students in our HIM and Health Information Technology programs, with the focus on Brazil, India, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and UAE,” said Dr. Dorine Bennett, DSU professor and director of health information management programs.
The MDCP, scheduled to run from Oct. 1, 2013 through Sept. 30, 2016, will further enable DSU to contribute to HIM academic excellence on the local, regional, national and international levels.
