Earn additional credentials with your degree

The UW-Milwaukee Diagnostic Imaging degree is designed to allow you to earn additional credentials while you complete the program. The Interprofessional Leadership in Healthcare microcredential is built in to the curriculum and allows you to showcase your knowledge with a digital badge.  In addition, you can earn the Health Care Informatics certificate with your degree by choosing the six courses as electives.

Health Care Informatics Certificate

Graduate with employer-valued skills by completing six three-credit courses. You’ll gain the skills and knowledge to understand, analyze, and evaluate the information used by successful healthcare organizations to provide patient care. In addition, this certificate can prepare you for a wide range of career options with hospitals, clinics, insurance companies, and pharmaceutical firms, as well as companies who design, develop, and implement health information systems.


Interprofessional Leadership in Healthcare Microcredential

Learn the skills necessary to work effectively with and across disciplines to provide quality patient care. Earning this microcredential is as easy as taking two courses in the Diagnostic Imaging degree program and one elective. Upon completion of these courses, you’ll be awarded a digital badge that you can use anywhere to show your accomplishment and your interprofessional leadership skills, while still earning your degree.  

Who should apply?
