CHIA Examination

Becoming a CHIA involves sitting and passing the CHIA examination.

The CHIA examination content is based on Australia’s 52 health informatics competencies.

The CHIA competencies framework was developed by academic leaders in the health informatics field, following extensive research and comparative modelling of health and biomedical informatics competencies from around the world.

Designed with a focus on the Australian healthcare system, the competencies framework is the backbone of CHIA, Australia’s industry certification for health informaticians.
