FEDIP Associate Practitioners perform a range of routine activities in varied environments, employing relevant cognitive and practical skills to complete well-defined, generally routine tasks. Associate Practitioner is an excellent way to begin developing within the informatics field and the first step on the path to professional registration, which demonstrates your competence in the field.  

Associate Practitioners have evidenced that they have met the criteria as set out in the FEDIP Standards and, as such, can be entered onto the professional register. The Federation for Informatics Professionals (FEDIP) maintain the only public register for all informatics professionals in the UK dedicated to bringing individuals and organisations together to deliver better healthcare through technology.  


Many practitioners choose to become an Associate level at the start of their informatics career. However, others choose to become an Associate in order to demonstrate their commitment to professional development and join the FEDIP register while working towards the higher levels.

Associate Practitioner

All applications across all grades are assessed against the FEDIP 'standard'. These are a common set of guidelines and criteria that all informaticians can be assessed against. 

The standard was written in consultation with the awarding professional bodies, UKCHIP and leading informaticians across the UK. 


Associate Practitioners exercise limited autonomy, working under supervision with limited discretion. They can identify, gather and use relevant information to inform actions.


They are expected to seek guidance in unexpected situations while performing a range of routine activities in varied environments, employing relevant cognitive and practical skills to complete well-defined generally routine tasks. Associate Practitioners may also contribute to routine issue resolution. 

To become an Associate Practitioner, you must submit evidence to support the competencies as required by the FEDIP Standards for informatics professionals in health and care.
