Today, AMIA is the home for 1000+ AMIA member physicians Certified in the Medical Subspecialty of Clinical Informatics.
 
AMIA invested more than $2.5 million in resources to develop and launch the Clinical Informatics Board Review Course Live and On-demand. CIBRC is the premier education prep for future diplomates.
