The AMIA Board of Directors has endorseda set of proposed AHIC eligibility requirements that will be presented to the future AHIC certifying entity for adoption. These requirementsspecifically establish who will be eligible to sit for the AHIC examination and more generally signal the depth and breadth of knowledge and experienceexpected from certified individuals. They also inform the development of the accreditation process and provide guidance to graduate healthinformatics programs as well as individuals interested in pursuing AHIC. AHIC eligibility will be determined by practice focus, education in primaryfield and health informatics, and significant health informatics experience.
