Katie Prentice completes Academy of Health Information Professionals membership requirements

Katie Prentice, Head of Education and Information Services in the Briscoe Library, has been approved by the Medical Library Association for membership in the Academy of Health Information Professionals (AHIP) at the Senior level.  The Academy of Health Information Professionals is MLA’s peer-reviewed professional development program that recognizes achievements in continuing education, teaching, publishing, research and other contributions to the profession.  The AHIP credential denotes the highest standards of professional competency and achievement in the field of health care information and must be renewed every five years.  Someone who has the AHIP credential must participate in continuing education courses and other professional development activities to maintain the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully support the institution’s mission and goals.

Katie worked for five years to achieve the AHIP credential.  Please join me in congratulating her on this important distinction!
