As I began writing this article, I realised my career as a Health Information Manager (HIM) began in high school. That may sound strange but I have my Year 11 French teacher to thank for a career that now encompasses 40 years. I had a not so favourable result in a French exam, he undertook some research, and I was presented with information for a Medical Record Librarian course at Lincoln Institute in Carlton, Victoria. I enrolled in 1976 and ‘the rest, as they say, is history’.
