The BCYT chapter is an integral part of the HIM community, bringing continuing education, networking events and activities, professional development support, and communication services to CHIMA members in British Columbia and Yukon.
The focus points for our chapter are education, engagement, and excellence.
We seek to provide education and networking opportunities for health information professionals throughout British Columbia and Yukon by hosting workshops and events regularly throughout the year. Each committee member brings unique experiences, expertise, and local knowledge from their particular region.
Our chapter committee’s objective for 2021 is to encourage safe connection between professionals in health information and beyond. We look forward to hosting virtual events and growing our health information community.
