The reason I pursued the CHID exam was to have tangible evidence confirming my knowledge of healthcare and hospitals. It’s one thing to say that I’ve spent 30 years inside a hospital and have worked with over 70 different departments within the hospital, but it’s another to have my clients write letters on my behalf and endorse my efforts! It has served me well, especially when a potential client asks what I had to do to achieve those letters beside my name. If a designer is interested in standing out their career, I suggest taking the exam.
