Mentorship

Are you new to the Health Information Management (HIM) Field?  Are you looking to learn more about a specific area? Are you looking for a career change?

MaHIMA has created a pilot mentorship program that focuses on pairing seasoned professionals with those looking for a change or new to the field. The purpose of the program is to foster a connection between subject matter experts and those who seek educational advice, career guidance, professional and personal growth and development, and real-life learning experience.

Program Structure:

  • As a mentee, you determine your areas of interest and needs
  • MaHIMA will work to identify the appropriate mentor based on your interests and needs
  • Mentorship can take place virtual or in-person (post COVID)
  • Subject matter experts will work one on one with mentee’s to provide tailored guidance, materials, and education

AHIMA-certified professionals hold an intimate relationship with health information. While our patients don’t often see us, we see our patients in a way no other healthcare professional does. This perspective is critical to the success of all modern health organizations. We see the person connected to the data, ensuring their information stays human – because when information stays human, it stays relevant.
