Past Bootcamper Comments

Huge source of information, references, opportunities, room for personal growth and immediately applicable to the way I currently work. 

- Fall 2010 Calgary Bootcamper

Coming from the IT side of Health Care - it is interesting to see/hear how much technology assists in healthcare. We "know" about it but talking about it here shows how vast it is used in everything.
- Spring 2010 UW Bootcamper

Definitely met expectations.  I was looking for an overview/details on Health Informatics to provide more background on the Healthcare industry as it relates to my role & this course was great at doing so.

- Fall 2009 York Bootcamper

Just Excellent!  Thorough intro. Well detailed description of HI challenges.
