ACMI (American College of Medical Informatics) is a college of elected fellows who have made significant and sustained contributions to the field of biomedical informatics. Initially incorporated in 1984, the organization later dissolved its separate corporate status to merge with the American Association for Medical Systems and Informatics (AAMSI) and the Symposium on Computer Applications in Medical Care (SCAMC) when the American Medical Informatics Association was formed in 1989. The College now exists as an elected body of fellows within AMIA, with its own governing documents and strategic plan that guide the organization, its activities, and its relationship with the parent organization. The College is fiscally self-sufficient, and its officers prepare and submit its financial plan annually for approval by the AMIA Board of Directors.
