Independent Reading Program
MLA's Independent Reading Program (IRP) is designed to provide members with a "virtual" education opportunity. MLA has put together this program to allow members to read journal articles from professional literature, complete an article analysis application, and receive MLA CE contact hours.
Program Goals and Objectives
To allow MLA members and other health professionals the opportunity to:
MLA CE contact hours
MLA members who read preselected IRP articles or a self-selected professional journal article and complete the IRP article analysis application will receive one MLA CE contact hour for each article read.
Academy of Health Information Professionals (AHIP)
A maximum of 3 contact hours per year from the IRP can be applied towards a member's AHIP application or renewal. This comes to a total of no more than 15 contact hours per five-year credentialing period. For more information on AHIP, go to Academy of Health Information Professionals.
