The Doctoral Consortium is a forum in which doctoral students can meet and discuss their work with each other and with a panel of experienced researchers and practitioners.
We welcome applicants from a broad range of disciplines and approaches that inform medical informatics, including the social sciences, humanities, computer and information sciences, clinical sciences, law, and related fields. Applicants should be past the candidacy stage and near their thesis proposal defense. If you would like to apply but do not meet this criteria, please contact the Consortium Chair. The Consortium committee will select approximately 10-12 participants who will be expected to give short, informal presentations of their work during the Consortium.
The Consortium will be held in conjunction with the American Medical Informatics (AMIA) 2011 Annual Symposium in Washington DC. Besides the symposium, participants will also be registered for the pre-conference Workshop on Interactive Systems in Healthcare 2011 (WISH 2011) (https://wish2011.wordpress.com/) which will take place on Oct. 22. Participants will be expected to present their research at the Poster Reception at the workshop.
There are a variety of benefits to students participating in the Doctoral Consortium including:
1. Participants will receive valuable feedback on their research from
both their peers and faculty mentors.
2. The Consortium will pay AMIA conference registration fees. We will also reimburse a portion of the hotel and and airfare for domestic (US) participants.
3. Accepted papers will have an extended abstract printed in the AMIA advance and onsite programs. The papers will also be listed on the consortium website.
4. Participants will have the opportunity to meet and network with peers and senior AMIA members.
Participants will be able to present their work at the Poster Reception
at WISH 2011 for feedback from workshop participants.
