The Academy of Health Information Professionals (AHIP) is the peer-reviewed, accomplishment/portfolio-based certification and career development program for health information professionals. Academy membership indicates that your peers have certified that you have met a standard of professional education, experience, and accomplishment and demonstrates that you are committed to career development. AHIP is also a membership organization in which members are entitled to career development, planning, and mentoring resources and member discounts.
HSLIC encourages its faculty members to consider applying for AHIP certification and membership. HSLIC will provide mentorship for faculty interested in applying for AHIP certification as well as pay the initial certification fee. Interested faculty should talk to their supervisor when they are ready to start this process.
