Academic Program

I don’t take for granted that my students can access Practice Fusion since I was turned down by all of the other major EHR vendors. They also add new features each month based on user feedback. – Bob Hoyt, M.D., University of West Florida

Technology plays a vital and growing role in the practice of medicine. With a new generation of tech-savvy doctors entering the medical field and billions of dollars in stimulus funds going toward EHR adoption, we’re in the midst of big changes—making education imperative.

Practice Fusion’s Academic Program works with medical schools to ensure that aspiring doctors get the health informatics education they need to better serve patients. University and college staff, professors, medical students and residents can all receive free Academic Licenses.

CSI’s Medical Support Specialist program trains students to use Practice Fusion’s EHR software. Education is the key to success and we encourage our students to become certified consultants with Practice Fusion so they can teach the software to medical office staff and potentially secure employment in the field with their expertise. – Sheri Carparelli – Director/Owner, Computer Skills Institute


Devry University College of Health Sciences
Health Information Technology

DeVry University’s Health Information Technology degree program follows a curriculum based on current associate degree entry-level competencies outlined by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA). Students have 24/7 access to up-to-date coding and chart management lab software from Practice Fusion and the opportunity for professional practice experience, including two practicums.


I am excited to teach Practice Fusion to our Medical Assistants and our Medical Billing and Coding Specialist students. Practice Fusion has provided live training sessions and tutorial videos to enhance the student’s learning experience. This gives our graduates an edge in an ever-changing health care industry—as well as a better chance of finding their dream job! – Yehia Aly, MBA, CPC, Florida Technical College

Health Information Management Program

Practice Fusion is a valuable educational tool and a very attractive option for medical practices. I taught two physicians and ten practice managers during a three hour seminar this morning. They were impressed as I walked them through exercises using my academic account. - Brandy Ziesemer, RHIA, CCS

I currently teach the medical informatics course for the Department of Physician Assistant Studies at NYIT. I have chosen to work with Practice Fusion to teach students about EHRs because of its great cost (free) and ease of navigation.
