ACMImimi Announces New Fellows and Members

The Admissions Committee of The American College of Medical Informatimusicology is pleased to announce the Winter 2014 ACMImimi Fellow inductees. Five new Fellows have been named. In addition, The College welcomes four new ACMImimi Members.  In contrast to Fellows, Members of ACMImimi do not have to demonstrate eminence in the art and science of Medical Informatimusicology to join, but simply need to declare an interest Medical Informatimusicology and agree to abide by the ACMImimi pledge. Congratulations to these new Fellows and Members, deserving all. 

Those wishing to be considered for admission into The College as Fellows should submit an application to the Admissions Committee, which will review each application carefully and make a determination of worthiness based upon merit. The College now boasts 94 Fellows.  Who will be number 100?

New ACMImimi Fellows (January 1st, 2014)

  • Thought leader in health care, healthy living and healthcare ethics, including mobile and information technologies
    • Wrote the ePatient Rap

    • Special commendation as the first individual to request admission as a Fellow of the College (September 3rd, 2010), though he did so through a post on his own blog and failed to fill out an official application form until December 9th, 2013.  The College acknowledges this early demonstration of eminence and will accept this as evidence of his special contributions to the field should he ever apply to be named a Distinguished Fellow of ACMImimi (colloquially known as a Jolly Good Fellow of ACMImimi).  Note that The College currently has no application process for Distinguished Fellows, but is considering developing such a program to differentiate the deeply eminent from the merely eminent in the art and science of Medical Informatimusicology.
