Abstract

Thirty-six students have graduated with a Graduate Diploma of Applied Science (Health Information Management) from the University of Sydney since the course was introduced in 1992. A survey of graduates was conducted to examine the extent to which they believed the course had provided them with sufficient knowledge and skills to become effective health information management practitioners. Options for changes to the course were also explored in the questionnaire. The results demonstrated that graduates strongly supported the existing curriculum. Increased opportunities for practical experience were suggested by many respondents. There was not strong support for an option to increase the length of the course. However, the option to commence study in January and undertake some classes in the inter-semester break was viewed positively by 68% of the graduates.
