Preparation for the Health Information Management Administration (HIMA) end of program seminar begins on day one of a student's graduate program of study. The theories, research methods, analytical skills, and substantive knowledge obtained through their master's curriculum provide the basis for a major research project. Students will work closely with the assigned faculty member to develop the subject matter of their project. Guidance on the format of the research proposal, Institutional Review Board (IRB), and formatting/technical questions can be found in the APUS End of Program manual. Capstone courses are NOT included in the university retake policy. All grades for any capstone attempts will appear on transcript and will be calculated in GPA. (Prerequisite: Students may only take this course after the completion of all CORE courses)
