    AMIA 2016 Annual Symposium

    AMIA 2016 Annual Symposium is the 40th anniversary of the Symposium. We want this year to be a homecoming that energizes our new and longtime members, welcomes attendees who haven’t visited the meeting in a few years; and attracts first time attendees to the incredible informatics community AMIA represents.

AMIA 2016 Sessions approved for MOC-II credit

A total of 25.5 hours of MOC LLSA credit through the American Board of Preventive Medicine is available at the AMIA 2016 Annual Symposium:
