Project Detail


Biomedical Informatics Curriculum Development

Partner(s): Rita Kukafka et al. - Department of Biomedical Informatics

CCNMTL assisted faculty from the Department of Biomedical Informatics (DBMI) to create sixty units of training material to be used at community colleges to teach six different Health IT roles. The objective of the program is to capture expertise held by content experts at DBMI into usable modules and formats to assist community college faculty in teaching these new courses. These modular training materials will be disseminated to seventy participating community colleges.

CCNMTL worked with the Columbia faculty to create well-designed PowerPoint presentations, which are augmented by accompanying narration and transcript files. These are also packaged into video files that include the PowerPoint presentation alongside the narration, providing faculty at the community college a choice of formats to integrate into their curriculum. The training modules also meet accessibility compliance (Section 508).

The Curriculum Development Grant is part of the Health IT Workforce Development Program funded by Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). The goal of the program is to train an estimated ten thousand trainees annually at the seventy community colleges.
