• AMIA Working Groups

    Working Groups are open to all AMIA members.


Working Groups

AMIA Working Groups serve as networks in which current members can exchange information on a particular area of special interest in biomedical and health informatics. Working Groups provide a way for members old and new to collaborate, meet new colleagues and become involved in the development of positions, issues, white papers, programs, and other activities that benefit the informatics community. Each Working Group extends to an online community in which members discuss key issues and developments in the field.
