HIT Accelerator Program
TN HIMSS and Belmont University have joined hands to create the Health Information Technology (HIT) Workforce Accelerator program.
“My journey brought me to Nashville with a passion for a career in HIT. I had no Healthcare experience, but I connected with the Health Information Technology Accelerator Program. For those serious about a career in Healthcare, this program provides a solid foundation. I transitioned from no Healthcare experience to a role in HIT using the tools I received during this program. I highly recommend this program to start or advance your career in HIT”.Carla Dukes
“The TN HIMSS Workforce Accelerator class is truly designed for participants of all levels of experience within the healthcare field. The program provides a current view of the major parts of healthcare IT today. It was a great experience to step outside of my focus of software implementation to learn about other healthcare IT areas.”Alison Summers
“The Workforce Accelerator Course was a great learning opportunity for me! It was awesome being able to hear from some of the industry’s top executives and thought leaders. I walked away with a wealth of knowledge and several valuable professional connections.”Josh Scales
