Congratulations Fellows of AMIA!

AMIA is proud to announce the inaugural class of 130 Fellows into the newly established FAMIA Applied Informatics Recognition Program – a new program meant to recognize AMIA members who apply informatics skills and knowledge within their professional setting, who have demonstrated professional achievement and leadership, and who have contributed to the betterment of the organization.

FAMIA was established in May 2018, following several months of deliberation by an interdisciplinary Advisory Group of AMIA members to define the FAMIA Eligibility Criteria. These deliberations reaffirmed that the FAMIA Applied Informatics Recognition Program be inclusive – balancing the needs of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and others within clinical informatics, with the needs of public health, clinical researchers, and others who apply informatics to their practice.

FAMIA recognizes professionals who apply informatics skills and knowledge towards the goals of enhanced personal and population health, improved organizational performance and learning, and individual empowerment in their health, care, and research.

New Fellows of AMIA are authorized to use the letters FAMIA in connection with their professional activities. A formal induction ceremony will be held at the AMIA 2019 Clinical Informatics Conference in Atlanta, April 30 – May 2, 2019.
