Library and Learning Services information hub for all things School of Health Sciences.


Student membership to AHIMA provides students with access to the AHIMA HIM Body of Knowledge database, which contains:

  • professional articles
  • magazine articles
  • scholarly journal articles
  • AHIMA briefs and papers

on health information, electronic health records, regulations, law, ethics, and other HIM/HIT topics.

Students should not buy their own student membership since Rasmussen takes care of that for them.

See for more information about when HIT students get their AHIMA Student Membership and what to do if you somehow didn't get your membership.
