Updated PPE Guide for Professional Practice Experience

AHIMA recently updated the PPE Guide for Professional Practice Experience.  This guide provides comprehensive information and best practices to students, academic faculty, HIM programs, and practitioners on the expectations for the professional practice experience that students undertake during their HIM academic program.

This update includes greater emphasis on distance education programs and examples of possible sites and project work in non-traditional HIM settings. In addition, the guide contains information on PPE content and length, the importance of work behaviors, and student feedback and advocacy projects.
