The Diploma in Hospital Infection Control (DipHIC) was established by the Hospital Infection Society (HIS), the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and the Public Health Laboratory Service (PHLS) in 1997 and has now completed two examinations. We outline progress since the announcement of the diploma and changes to the written examination and reflective portfolio. The reflective process is described and guidance provided to active infection control practitioners wishing to consider application for the diploma by accreditation of prior learning.
