My teaching responsibilities have included graduate courses that span two core disciplines: Management Information Systems (MIS) and Healthcare Management (HMGT). I have developed the graduate core course on Healthcare Informatics within the MS in Healthcare Management program. I have also led a joint UTD-UTSW Medical Centre collaboration to develop a new elective course (HMGT 6327) which provides students with hands-on experience in the use of the EPIC electronic medical record software. These courses provide the foundation for the Graduate Certificate in Health Information Technology which was launched in Fall 2012.
I have developed and taught a graduate elective course on Information Technology and Management (MIS 6302) for the MS in Information Technology & Management program, and also taught the core Accounting Information Systems course (AIM 6343) for the MS in Accounting program. I have also taught a PhD course on IS economics in Fall 2009 and 2012 for our MIS Ph.D. candidates.
The course provides students with the necessary background to understand the role of information technology in organizations, and how to manage such technologies.
