The fellowship program is a program of earned recognition for AHIMA members who made significant and sustained contributions to the profession. Fellows exemplify our mission to “empower people to impact health®" through their advocacy, innovation and knowledge sharing.

The purpose of the fellowship program is to:

  • Recognize significant and sustained commitment to the advancement of HI through meritorious service, excellence in professional practice, excellence in HI education, and advancement of the profession through innovation and knowledge sharing.
  • Provide an incentive for dedicated members to contribute to the advancement of the profession.
  • Bring together senior HI professionals as an organizational resource for continued promotion and development of the profession through a variety of activities.

Individuals who earn fellowship may use the designation “Fellow of the American Health Information Management Association (FAHIMA),” and their names will be maintained in the AHIMA Registry of Fellows.

The fellowship program has two designations: fellowship and candidacy for fellowship.
