Doisy College of Health Sciences has provided students with the tools and education to become well-prepared health care professionals since 1929.
Saint Louis University's accelerated B.S. in Health Information Management to Law, JD, program is designed for students who demonstrate academic success in health management and related coursework and are interested in pursuing a law degree.
The Program in Health Information Management is a unique undergraduate program that blends the study of medical sciences, information technology, legal concepts, and healthcare management.
Students in the HIM Program learn about the complex rules and regulations impacting healthcare and health data. This establishes a strong foundation for students interested in going to law school and pursuing a Juris Doctorate.
