AMIA 2019 Informatics Educators Forum

Plan to attend the AMIA 2019 Informatics Educators Forum, June 18-20 at the Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark. The Informatics Educators Forum provides an opportunity to learn state-of-the-art approaches and best practices in education, research, and training; and to build, support, and strengthen the academic informatics community. The conference is designed for faculty and staff who are committed to their own professional growth and the growth of their program. The Informatics Educators Forum also serves multidisciplinary, inter-professional informatics professionals at all levels of academic informatics. The goals of the AMIA 2019 Informatics Educators Forum are to:

  • Deliver focused workshops on topics like leadership, course development, and accreditation.
  •  Address curricular and pedagogical challenges within health informatics education across the spectrum of education settings, including high school, undergraduate, and graduate level education, and professional roles.
  • Exchange best practices in informatics research and education to support the professional growth of academic informatics professionals and the students they educate.
  • Prepare students for their future professional roles, whether those roles are in academics, clinical practice, government, or industry.

Network with peers facing similar challenges and strengthen your relationships in the academic informatics community.
