Trey Lemley, associate librarian at the University of South Alabama Biomedical Library, was recently approved for membership in the Academy of Health Information Professionals (AHIP) at the Distinguished Member level.
AHIP is the Medical Library Association’s peer-reviewed professional development and career recognition credentialing program. The academy promotes lifelong learning and exemplary professional performance by recognizing achievements in continuing education, teaching, publishing and research.
The Distinguished Member level is the highest of the five levels of AHIP and requires significant professional accomplishment in the last five years, along with a relevant graduate degree and at least 10 years of professional experience in the health information field.
According to Judy Burnham, director of the USA Biomedical Library, all biomedical librarians at USA are members of AHIP – with four members at the Distinguished level, two at the Senior level, and two at the Member level.
Lemley said he has been a member of AHIP since 2010. “For me,” he said, “AHIP is a means to increase my effectiveness as an information professional and to demonstrate my commitment to the field of medical librarianship.”
