What is AHIP?

The Academy of Health Information Professionals (AHIP) is the Medical Library Association’s credentialing program. AHIP allows you to track your professional development and expanding career-related knowledge base. The AHIP credential is recognized professionally as a sign of commitment to career growth and development.

How can MAC help?

MAC members have volunteered to serve as AHIP counselors. Contact Allison Matthews, MAC AHIP Coordinator, to be connected to a counselor. A list of MLA members in the MAC region who are willing to mentor Provisional Members is available.

Membership levels and requirements

There are five levels of AHIP membership. The levels correspond to the number of years of professional experience as well as the extent of an individual’s professional accomplishments. Membership lasts for five years and can then be renewed at the same level or a higher level:
