An Important Message About Remote Instruction


ALL UCF courses have moved to online platforms for the coming weeks to help maintain the safety and health of students at UCF. The Department of Health Management and Informatics is prepared to assist students during this time and we are available for appointments with program coordinators and faculty. Please be sure that you are monitoring your Knights email account and reading ALL UCF communications during this time. While courses are moving to an alternate platform, all other university policies remain in place.

All Faculty and Staff are still operating as usual. You will still be able to schedule phone or skype appointments with your HMI program coordinators or the CCIE advisors.  Aside from moving to the online teaching platform for the entire university, everything else is business as usual and will remain accessible to students remotely.

We are still able to assist you with your appointments and ask that you utilize appointments over the phone or via skype as the CDC recommends maintaining a social distance of 6ft to help decrease the spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).  In the event that Faculty and Staff are asked to also work remotely, we will still be available for student appointments via the phone and skype. At no time will we leave you without support and access! To change or schedule an appointment, please call our front office at 407-823-2359
