Inspired by Michelle Lieggi and Michelle Rachal, fellow NCNMLG members who received professional development awards to apply for AHIP status, I similarly was very happy to receive NCNMLG’s support to help me put forward an application for AHIP, Senior Member status. Although I’ve been a medical librarian for over 5 years, the application fee for AHIP credentialing had thus far been a barrier to my putting forward an application. But this year, with the grant received from NCNMLG, I finally had everything it took (medical library experience, publications, CE credits, and the application fee) to apply. I’m proud to say my application was just accepted by the MLA Credentialing Committee, and I can now put “AHIP” in my signature line!
To help others out there who might be thinking about going through the AHIP application process, here are a few tips:
Overall, I’m extremely grateful to NCNMLG for funding my AHIP application. It was a process that, though time consuming, I found extremely rewarding and well worth it.
