Announcements

  • Working Group Nominations are Open!

    Are you ready to serve the association, its members, and the profession? AMIA relies on the dedication of its volunteers as the cornerstone of the organization.

    Currently, AMIA is accepting applications for leadership positions within 19 AMIA Working Groups. These groups provide an excellent opportunity for young informatics professionals to gain early career leadership experience and for seasoned AMIA members to share their valuable knowledge and insights.

    The nomination criteria for Working Group leaders are designed to ensure a diverse mix of experience, age, gender, race, ethnicity, identity, orientation, geography, and institution. This diversity reflects the wide spectrum of AMIA membership, the healthcare profession, and the broader population. 

    Each Working Group manages its own nominations. Once the nominees are announced, voting instructions will be available on the AMIA website. Apply by July 12. 

  • New Learning Health Systems Discussion Forum

  • Special Call for Reviewers

    I am reaching out to ask for assistance recruiting reviewers from AMIA's Working Groups to join our team of subject matter experts for AMIA's signature conference.  The Scientific Program Committee (SPC) continues to seek additional reviewers for our upcoming AMIA 2024 Annual Symposium, scheduled to take place in San Francisco, California from November 9-13, 2024.  Although we are fortunate to have recruited 700 reviewers so far, we need an additional 200 reviewers to effectively load balance the number of submissions assigned to each volunteer.

    The review period is set to run from April 24 to May 7. We kindly ask that you share this email inviting our fellow members to sign up to serve as a peer-reviewer.  Names will be accepted until April 18 at 11:59 PM Eastern.  Click here to register as a reviewer.

    As an exciting new opportunity for this year's Symposium, reviewers who provide excellent reviews will be in consideration for a recognition, which will bring along special rewards, such as a discount on registration. 

    Peer-review plays a crucial role in maintaining the quality and scientific integrity of our presentations--thank you for supporting the work of the AMIA 2024 SPC by asking our fellow members to review submissions for the upcoming Annual Symposium.

    Best regards,

    Hojjat Salmasian, MD,MPH, PhD, FAMIA
