Professional Practice Experience

All health information systems technology students participate in professional practice experience (PPE). This professional practice provides students with opportunities to obtain real-world experience.

PPE opportunities are provided at participating professional practice facilities and through online-simulations. Both on-site and simulations provide students with the opportunity to reinforce competencies and skill sets.

NOTE: The program establishes, coordinates and supervises all professional practice experiences. Students living outside the Greater Cincinnati area are assisted by faculty in locating a suitable PPE in their geographic locations.
