Health informatics programs usually are evaluated by national accreditation committees. Not always are the members of these committees well informed about the international level of (education in) health informatics. Therefore, when a program is accredited by a national accreditation committee, this does not always mean that the program is of an international level. Institutions may invite international experts to assess their educational programs. IMIA can serve as an intermediary for organizing the peer review. IMIA can play the role of accreditation committee and together with the institution assign an independent site visit committee to carry out the peer review. This contribution describes the IMIA accreditation procedure.
