HOD Health Records & Information Management
Poor data and information management remains an impediment to effective provision of health services in the country, this was the driving force behind the establishment of health records and information management program in Uzima University.
With skilled and experienced lecturers, we aim at producing competent Health Information Officers with a solid scientific base, ethics and professional attributes requisite in the provision of quality health care services in all settings.
We offer both certificate and diploma, our point of entry and curriculum is in line with the Association of medical records officers Kenya (AMRO-K) requirements. Apart from theory, our students are subjected to a three months clinical attachment at selected hospitals by the University.The department is looking forward to establishing Bachelors program soon.
The department has developed a memorandum of understanding with Kisumu County therefore our students can utilize any health facility within the county depending on the level required by the carriculum.Jaramogi OgingaOdinga teaching and referral hospital forms our key hospital of reference.
The plan to have an exchange program with like-minded institutions is in progress.
