Professor Fernando Martin-Sanchez PhD, FACHI, Chair of Health Informatics at the Melbourne Medical School and Director of the Health and Biomedical Informatics Centre (HaBIC) at the University of Melbourne, has been elected a Fellow of the American College of Medical Informatics (ACMI).
The American College of Medical Informatics originated in 1984 when five pioneers in informatics decided to establish an honorific society to recognize expertise in biomedical informatics. It is an honorary College of elected Fellows, mainly from the US and occasionally from other countries, who have made significant and sustained contributions to the field of biomedical informatics and who have met rigorous scholarly scrutiny by their peers. The College organises various scientific activities, their own meetings and conferences, publications and advisory studies for public entities. Nineteen new ACMI Fellows were elected this year and they will all be formally inducted on Sunday, Nov. 16 at the annual reception and dinner of the College held in conjunction with the AMIA (American Medical Informatics Association) 2014 Annual Symposium in Washington. All ACMI Fellows are able to use the designation FACMI, indicating that they are an elected Fellow of ACMI.
