DVMD – The German Association for Professionals in the Field of Medical Documentation (Health Information Management, HIM)
The German association for Health Information Managers (HIM) was founded in 1972 by the first accredited HIM specialists in medical documentation. The professional scope has amplified ever since, with the professions of “Assistant for Health Information Management” (2 years-training) and “Graduated HIM specialist” (4 years university-education) joining the occupational field.
Over the past years, the association has opened up also for other employees in the HIM profession. Especially career changers from within the healthcare profession are encouraged to strengthen the DVMD as a representation for their professional interests through their membership.
