ACMI Fellows

The College originated in 1984 when five pioneers in informatics decided to establish an honorific society to recognize expertise in biomedical Informatics. Today, there are nearly 300 Fellows, with 10-20 new Fellows elected each year when Voting Fellows of the College judge nominees during a formal election process. Use the search feature below to view the names of individuals who have achieved ACMI Fellowship, one of the highest honors in the field of informatics.
