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. Join one (or two) today!

I am an AMIA member because the Nursing Informatics Working Group (NIWG) provides me the opportunity to learn from, and network with, nursing informatics leaders from across the country and world. We come together as a community with annual objectives to support nurses and the greater AMIA membership. Our goal is to encourage greater NIWG participation in AMIA while mentoring NIWG members throughout their informatics career.

Please join the community that understands who you are and what you do. By working together, we make a difference in our profession. — Denise M. Goldsmith, MS, MPH, RN, FAAN, 2017 Chair, NIWG

This is a "member-only" benefit. Not a member? Join today! Take a sneak peek at a few webinars while strolling through AMIA’s member benefits page.
