Students can obtain their associate degree and their RHIT credentials, continue on to earn their bachelor's degree and the RHIA credentials, and even complete their education with a master's or doctorate degree in health information management, or a related field. With each advance in education and credentials, a student's employment opportunities and salary potential increase significantly.
