The Academy of Health Information Professionals
Membership in the Academy of Health Information Professionals benefits professional librarians, as well as the institution that employs them.
For the professional librarian, academy membership provides a structure for professional development. From the initial needs assessment and mentoring of provisional members to the recognition of professional accomplishments of distinguished members, the academy is here to support professional librarians. Membership in the academy recognizes and encourages professional activities, and the AHIP designation demonstrates this commitment to professional development.
Employing institutions view academy membership as proof that their librarians are committed to their own professional development and continuing education. Institutions who value academy membership recognize and reinforce the importance the health information professional plays in their organization.
