AHIMA and AHIMA Foundation's National Guidelines for Apprenticeship Standard were certified by the United States Department of Labor (DoL). The certification of the guidelines will help to bridge the gap for graduating or post-certification student seeking career in HIM through paid apprenticeships, which will provide a clear pathway to full-time employment. The Foundation acts as a bridge between interested employers (sponsors), apprentices, and the Employment and Training Administration of the Department of Labor.
We have developed four apprenticeship roles:
• Hospital Coder/Coding Professional
• Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialist
• Business Analyst
• Data Analyst
The AHIMA Foundation is transforming HIM through WORKFORCE and LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT with academics, research, and philanthropy to ready HIM professionals for the future. Our apprenticeship program is a dynamic opportunity for new graduates seeking their first work experience and to provide career mobility for those seeking a change in career opportunities or career advancement. We want you to be part of this of this exciting new HIM career pathway. We invite you to submit your application of interest for the AHIMA Foundation’s Registered Apprenticeship program.
