Consultant terminologist program
The aim of the SNOMED International Consultant Terminologist Program is to enable an individual with SNOMED CT editing experience to develop into a SNOMED International Consultant Terminologist. The individual successfully completing the mentoring program will be designated as a “SNOMED International Consultant Terminologist”, indicating that the individual is qualified and capable of undertaking advanced development tasks.
The Consultant Terminologist Program has been undergoing a review for the past year, with both internal and external input. As part of that review, there have been many contributions to both identifying where changes could be made and also the benefits found from participating. To those that contributed, we want to thank you for your input!
We have concluded our evaluation and can now advise that the Consultant Terminologist Program will no longer be offered in the same format. Students who are currently enrolled will be able to complete the program and become certified. However, SNOMED International will not be accepting new students into the program. For prior participants needing to re-certify in 2018, the period of certification will extend for 12 months.
