The department of Academic Affairs is excited to announce the creation of two new positions. Academic Success Coaches (ASC) will work with students from matriculation to graduation with the primary goal being student success. Each Logan University student will be assigned an ASC. The ASC will help students track their academic progress, identify resources available to maximize student success and help coach students on different ways to overcome obstacles that may impede the achievement of their goals. Current students already assigned to a faculty academic advisor may elect to continue with their academic advisor from their current program through graduation, provided they continue to maintain satisfactory academic progress. Your ASC will help you make that determination.
Anna Schowalter, MAT, has accepted the position of ASC for the College of Chiropractic and Casey Bryzeal has accepted the position of ASC for the College of Health Sciences. Anna began her duties on March 26, 2015 and Casey will begin her duties on April 20, 2015.

Logan University has announced the addition of a new master’s degree focused on health care technology and administration.
The online Master of Science Degree in Health Informatics (MSHI) is designed to address the rapidly growing area of information system design, data management, health policy and public health issues. It is geared toward those looking to gain more experience in the areas of health care, information technology and business.
Sherri Cole, PhD, dean of the College of Health Sciences, said as the health care industry continues to evolve, the demand for heath informatics professionals is growing.
"Logan has developed this degree because we recognize the critical role health informatics plays in healthcare delivery, now and in the future," she said. "This degree will train professionals who understand how health care is delivered and how technology can be used to its full potential to ensure high quality patient care."
Beginning in Fall 2015, the MSHI degree program will be offered completely online, allowing students to enroll in classes which fit around their work schedules. Tuition for the program is $450 per credit hour and is one of the most affordable of all online Health Informatics programs.
The MSHI degree program consists of 24 credit hours of core coursework with the option of choosing one out of the four concentration areas: healthcare compliance, health policy and management, public health and quality systems. Graduates are eligible to sit for the Certified Professional in Health Information & Management Systems (CPHIMS) certification.
