Testimonials About Our Program


“I attended the University of Connecticut – Health Information Technology Certificate program and received a wealth of information, which has provided a wonderful foundation for my work in health information technology. It has expanded my career, knowledge and depth of expertise. If you’re looking for a challenging program, look no further”.

– Melanie Bujanda-Romero, MPH

“I was a single Mother and have been in IT for 15 years, yet found myself facing another round of company layoffs due to my position being outsourced and offshored. I immediately registered and began the programs; they were invaluable and tailored specifically for what I needed. I finished the program, updated my resume to reflect the certificate from UConn and within one month, I was hired by a prominent healthcare company in Westchester County. I give all credit to UConn for making programs like this available and for giving me a second chance at a thriving career. I am beyond appreciative to have received such a gift at this stage in my life, thank you sincerely”.

HCIT Certificate Graduate

“Prior to starting the HCIT program at the University of Connecticut I knew little about the intricacies of the world of Healthcare Information Technology. As a former Clinician and a Medical Sales Professional I knew the importance of sharing and using data to help care for and manage patients in the Hospital and throughout the community. Upon starting the courses I quickly realized the competency of the Instructors and the relevance of the material. The Instructors bring real world experience from leadership positions in some of the top Hospital IT departments in the country. After completion of the HCIT program I felt better prepared and more confident when speaking with Executive Leadership at the accounts I manage”.
