Teaching yourself FHIR doesn’t have to cost a fortune

The official and unofficial FHIR courses are expensive.

Here’s how to learn enough to put you in the top 5% of FHIR devs.

Everything you need to know as a beginner and intermediate developer working with FHIR is already in the FHIR documentation — for free.

You just have to know where to find it.

The best resource I found for working through the documentation is the “HL7 FHIR Proficiency Study Guide”, linked to from the HL7 website here.

Download the PDF Guide

This resource is geared towards learning what you need to learn to pass the certificate exam.

But you don’t need to be taking the exam to use this guide.

If you work through it and understand all the pages it references, you’ll know more than 95% of developers who use FHIR.

So remember — if you’re thinking of paying for a FHIR course, work through the study guide first. You might not need to spend those dollars after all.
