The Academic Forum is an institutional membership for biomedical and health informatics training programs. Each member program provides leadership and networking opportunities to one to four AMIA Members from their institution to represent their program within the Academic Forum.

Academic Forum Members represent more than 80 premier institutions that offer a range of courses, degrees, and fellowships, reflecting the diversity of informatics research and the practice of translational bioinformatics, clinical research, consumer, clinical, and public health informatics.

Emerging and long-standing programs join the Academic Forum to collaborate, share best practices, and give back to their programs through informed knowledge.
