“Not having a clinical background myself, I had always been hesitant to describe myself as a health informatician. CHIA has shown me that there is a broader, more encompassing definition of the role, and that everybody involved in the field has a contribution to make. I’ve spent the last 6 years working in health IT and the program has helped me consolidate and contextualise that experience which I think will be beneficial to my ongoing work”David O’Driscoll
“For me, becoming a CHIA reinforces my commitment to the field of health informatics. While I am, first and foremost, a pharmacist, I believe that the CHIA program has helped me to acquire knowledge in an important field of healthcare that I can then bring back to advance the pharmacy profession, and ultimately improve healthcare delivery and outcomes.”Dr Kenneth Lee
