Chris Paton replied to Arthi Vamsi's discussion What certifications we can apply for by going through these MOOC courses in Health Informatics?
"Hi Arthi, unfortunately we don't offer certificates for completing the MOOC courses at the moment. There are some other health informatics MOOCs on coursera and EdX I believe that do offer certificates.

    is provided

    Jordan (my country).


    This is a full sponsorship that will cover

    and
    relocation expenses for
    the training period.


    The position has to be in the field of Medical Records

    we can benefit from when I go back to work in the proposed new center
    at

    Thank you in advance for your info and assistance.
