IHE USA Monitors Gain Real-World Experience

Each year, IHE USA recruits volunteer monitors to verify testing at the IHE North American Connectathon, January 25 - 29, 2016, in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. Monitors use their skills and expertise to review and evaluate interoperability tests completed by participating organizations at the IHE Connectathon.

As a monitor, you will gain exposure to the latest standards, cutting-edge technology, and the engineers that make it all possible. Our unique, practical learning environment provides the experience you need to grow professionally.

IHE USA's monitor program is a highly competitive and respected program that is vital to both the individual’s professional development and industry as a whole. Learn more about eligibility requirements for this exciting opportunity.
