Stephens College Debuts a New Master’s Degree Program in Health Information Management

Stephens College, a four-year, private educational institution for women in Columbia, Missouri, has announced that it will offer a new online master’s degree program in health information management. The master’s degree was designed to align with the most up-to-date graduate curricular competencies from the American Health Information Management Association and will prepare graduates for executive-level positions in the nation’s rapidly growing medical and health service management industry.

The program offers eight-week courses all year long, allowing students to complete the 36-hour degree in as little as five semesters. Students may begin classes in January, June or August, attending full- or part-time.

The new graduate program is led by Susan Foster, the former director of health information management programs at Missouri Western State University and Crowder College in Neosho, Missouri. She stated that “our new master of science in health information management program will inspire students to learn through a rigorous and challenging curriculum that will enable them to grow and become leaders in the health data and information profession.”

Dr. Foster joined the faculty this past fall. She holds a bachelor’s degree in health administration management from Stephens College and an MBA and a doctorate in higher education administration from Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri.
