Phoenix College and GateWay Community College (two Maricopa Community Colleges) were recently notified by The Los Rios Community College District in California that they have been named a part of a consortium of 14 colleges to receive a portion of a $5.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The grant is designed to train individuals to provide assistance in the installation and use of computerized health information systems in hospitals and medical offices. The electronic systems are meant to replace traditional paper methods.

A pilot group of 14 GateWay Community College students have completed the program and are looking for paid internships to serve as a bridge between the classroom and practical work experience. Companies currently involved or moving into any aspect of the electronic health records industry are encouraged to consider GateWay students for internships.

For more information on the Systems Analysis for Practice Management Program or how to contact students for internships, call Heidi at (602) 286-8931 or John at (602) 286-8594. For information on the grant or the Health Information Technology program at Phoenix College, call Bonnie at (602) 285-7149.
