AMIA schedules informatics educator conference

The American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) has announced plans to hold its first conference specifically geared to informatics educators.

Because informatics has become a full-fledged career path, educators are actively engaging students in informatics at earlier ends of the spectrum using programs that serve high school and undergraduate students with this in mind, according to the organization.

Participants of the InSpire conference will learn how programs are supporting the next generation of science in informatics, are integrating research and academic experiences in progressive ways and moving toward shared didactic content using massive open online courses (MOOCs) and other innovative strategies.

AMIA currently is accepting proposals for workshops, presentations, roundtable discussions, rapid fire talks, panels and posters.

All proposals must be submitted by March 17. Get more information.
