Student Health Information Management Association

SHIMA is a registered student organization that provides opportunities for HIM and interested Illinois State University students to:

  • Coordinate and operate a professional organization
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Meet HIM professionals/graduates and HIM students

Guest speakers discuss their profession and job opportunities with SHIMA members monthly during the Fall and Spring semesters. Students learn networking skills on professional and social levels while learning about potential careers in the HIM profession.

Each year, SHIMA sponsors a December Holiday philanthropic project. For the last two years, SHIMA members have donated, wrapped, and delivered over 130 toys and other items to a local community service organization to brighten the holidays for those children in need!

SHIMA is open to all health information management majors and interested ISU students.

For more information, contact the SHIMA faculty advisor, Jennifer Peterson, RHIA, at or 309-438-7236.
