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. 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) ( which will take place on Oct. 22. Participants will be expected to present their research at the Poster Reception at the workshop.
