Making connections that matter is what makes participation in a membership organization worth the time invested.  Informatics is a multidisciplinary interprofessional field with hundreds of specialized interest areas.

Becoming part of the AMIA community means finding access to people and opportunities you could never find in any other organization dedicated to making health and healthcare better.

Everything starts with AMIA Connect the online member community. It’s the first place to join a group and look for your birds-of-feather in the Membership Directory.
