Certifications

The three certification levels within AIMBI are: Registered Biomedical Illustrator (RBI); Associate of AIMBI (AAIMBI); Fellow of AIMBI (FAIMBI). The certification panel usually meets every two years in conjunction with AIMBI national conference.

Registered Biomedical Illustrator

Financial Practising members can submit a portfolio of work, which is judged by an expert panel at a Biennial Conference. The RBI program is aimed at establishing a minimum professional standard in our field. Successful candidates are entitled to use the letters R.B.I. after their name.

Please check with your local R&E Board member for details of delivery of your portfolio and supporting information.

Associate

A member is judged to be an associate member of AIMBI after submission and scrutiny of details of educational, management and personal development within the field. The letters A.A.I.M.B.I. after a person’s name signifies they have attained a professional level of competence in their biomedical communication career.

For submission of your application send a pdf of your documentation to the R&E chair.  Please retain originals for verification.  Copies will be circulated to all R&E members.

Fellowship
