Global Health Management and Informatics


Managing risk is a necessity in healthcare. Facilities providing inpatient treatment, surgical services and complex medical care need healthcare risk managers to help deliver safe and trusted care. The School of Global Health Management and Informatics, in partnership with UCF Continuing Education, offers the Health Care Risk Management Certificate to prepare current healthcare professionals with skills necessary to manage risk.

Students can complete the 12-module course fully online at their own pace. The certificate focuses on clinical and administrative risks with a particular emphasis on Florida Risk Management statutes.

The curriculum aligns with the Florida Society for Healthcare Risk Management and Patient Safety Professional Development Framework. The certificate has been offered at UCF for over 25 years and is approved by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration.

The state of Florida no longer requires licensure. If interested professionals do not meet the Agency for Health Care Administration eligibility requirements, they can still take the course and receive a certificate upon completion.
Students can complete the 12 modules at their own pace. However, the entire course will need to be completed within one year.
Students will be prepared to take the licensing exam offered at the end of the course. However, licensing also depends on additional eligibility requirements as determined by the state. Florida no longer requires licensure for risk management.
