Congratulations to the nine honorees who earned their Health Information Technology Certification of Professional Achievement on May 10 during a celebration inside the Columbia Department of Biomedical Informatics.
Patricia Falto, Amy Kim, Mariam Mohsin, Gul Moonis, Cynthia Polynice, Maria Juana Romero, Claudette Tiru, Johanna Wenderoth and Tracey Whyte were each honored after successfully completing their two-semester, competency-based Certification of Professional Achievement program.
Steven Posnack, executive director of the Office of Technology, enhanced the celebration with his keynote “There and Back Again: Perspectives on Health IT, Interoperability, and Policymaking,” and he joined the graduates later for a photo on the roof of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.
“May 10th was a great day,” said Virginia Lorenzi, Director of the Columbia HIT Certification Program. “I am so proud of our Health IT graduates, loved seeing program alumni, and very thankful to the vendors who exhibited at the career fair.”
