SBMI Project Management in Healthcare Continuing Education

This School of Biomedical Informatics Continuing Education course is an introduction to both systems analysis and project management. System analysis and design is the process of developing information systems that effectively use hardware, software, data, processes, and people to support the company’s business objective. Project management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements.

The course is intended to meet the educational experience requirement needed for Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification. Course participants who successfully complete the course will earn 39 hours (PDUs) of project management education/training with the Project Management Institute (PMI) as the School of Biomedical Informatics is a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) for PMI.

In addition to the 39 hours (PDUs) of project management education/training earned upon successful completion of this course, participants will need additional requirements in order to be eligible to take the PMP Certification Exam. Please visit the PMI website for more details.
