    Testimonials

    When deciding to return to school for a second career, the Health Information Management at SLC seemed like a program that would lead to a new and exciting career opportunity. I commuted to school from an hour west of Kingston and I had a toddler at dome so I didn't have a lot of extra time. The program was challenging but I thoroughly enjoyed the work and the lectures. The professors were knowledgeable and each brought forth their own HIM career experiences. They were also very supportive and always available. I passed the certification exam and within months of graduation found the job that made the program so worthwhile for me. The skills I obtained in the Health Information Management Program prepared me for my new career and I am enjoying all the endless opportunities and doors it has opened for me.
