Focus on Fellow Membership
As part of the HIMAA Membership Enhancement Strategy we have committed to reviewing the Fellow Program. We would like to review the benefits and connections that will come to members when they reach Fellow Membership Status- making it a meaningful program to be a part of.
In the meantime we would like to first encourage you to apply for Fellow Membership.
Why Become a Fellow Member of HIMAA?
- Prestige and Recognition
Becoming a Fellow Member of HIMAA is a testament to your unwavering commitment and expertise in the field of health information management. It is a distinction that sets you apart as a leader and influencer in our constantly evolving industry. Fellow Membership bestows upon you the recognition you deserve among your colleagues, employers, and peers.
- Networking and Collaboration
As a Fellow Member, you will have the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who can become invaluable collaborators, mentors, and friends. This network can serve as a powerful resource as you navigate your career path and stay updated on industry trends. As more members receive Fellow status we are hoping to create a network of subject matter experts.
- Credibility and Career Progression
Fellow Membership is a symbol of excellence in health information management. It not only bolsters your professional credibility but also paves the way for career progression opportunities. Employers often seek out Fellow Members as trusted professionals who are committed to their field of expertise.
