The American Medical Informatics Association's (AMIA) People and
Organizational Working Group along with the International Medical
Informatics Association's (IMIA) Organizational and Social Issues
Working Group is proud to sponsor our 1st Doctoral Consortium on
Organizational Issues in Medical Informatics
(http://web.umr.edu/~mreddy/amia/index.htm). 

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 beyond
the proposal stage 
and well into their research. The Consortium committee will select
approximately 10 to 12 participants who will be expected to give short,
informal presentations of their work during 
the Consortium, to be followed by a discussion. 

The Consortium  will be held on October 22, 2005 in conjunction with the
American Medical Informatics (AMIA) 2005 Annual Symposium
(http://www.amia.org/meetings/annual/current/ in Washington DC Oct
22-26.
