Regulation Announcement

The Academy for Healthcare Science (AHCS) and the Committee for the Accreditation of Medical Illustration Practitioners (CAMIP) today announced that endorsement has been received from the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA) to extend the AHCS Accredited Register to include Medical Illustrators.

This decision [available here] means that individuals previously on the CAMIP Register will now be transferred to the Medical Illustrator part of the AHCS Accredited Register with effect from 31st March 2017. Individuals who have not previously been registered with CAMIP but meet the Register Standards [available here] will be able to apply directly via the AHCS website.

Medical Illustrators joining the AHCS Register show commitment to maintaining standards of education, competence and conduct and provides assurance for employers, patients and the public.

Professional Standards Authority accreditation means that the Academy has met the Authority’s demanding standards of governance. These include standards setting, education and training, management of the register, provision of information and complaints handling.

Janet Monkman, AHCS Chief Executive, said “The Academy is delighted to have been able to help such a committed group achieve their ambition and we look forward to welcoming registrants and continuing to work with colleagues at the Institute of Medical Illustrators”.

In the coming days, further information will be posted on the CAMIP website.

This news demonstrates our long-held commitment to education, maintaining standards and protecting patients in having qualified and registered practitioners.

This has been a long journey for the profession and we have been assisted along the way by many dedicated individuals. We are indebted to them all.
