Help Students

Help Students With a Professional Practice Experience

All students attending CAHIIM accredited HIT/HIM/HIA programs in the State of Missouri are required to complete clinical hours. The MOHIMA Board is reaching out to our members to see if anyone would be interested in hosting a student during their Professional Practice Experience (PPE). By submitting your name, you are not committing yourself or your facility to hosting a student. You are simply submitting your information as a potential clinical site.

There are many variables to the PPE assignment, and we know there are processes and policies that facilities must adhere to. Therefore, your information will be shared with the Program Directors/ students, and both sides can communicate as to whether the facility can provide the training/shadowing the student needs. 

Click the button below for more details and to submit your information.  We understand that circumstances can change. In the event that you are no longer able to or are interested in hosting students for a PPE, please submit an update through the Contact Us form.
