Clinical and Translational Informatics Rounds (CTIR)

The goals of CTIR are to provide the following with regards to Clinical and Translational Informatics:

  • A journal club component where we will critically discuss landmark and current informatics papers from large and diverse collections of venues where the work is published
  • An outlet to present informatics papers, posters and projects before or after presentation at national meetings
  • Presentation, discussion and brainstorming about current or planned informatics projects, databases, decision support systems in clinical, clinical research, biomarker discovery or other patient-related research areas
  • Networking opportunities in a collegial atmosphere as a supplement to other established activities
  • Formation of a cadre of informaticians across the institution in preparation for the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) efforts to bring about subspecialty board certification in Clinical Informatics and to prepare for training related funding opportunities such as National Library of Medicine informatics fellowships

Accreditation

The Emory University School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Emory University School of Medicine designates this continuing medical education activity for up to 1 hour in Category 1 credit toward the PRA of the AMA. Each physician should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

The proposed goals of CTIR are to provide the following with regards to Clinical and Translational Informatics:

  • A journal club component where we will critically discuss landmark and current informatics papers from large and diverse collections of venues where the work is published 
  • An outlet to present informatics papers, posters and projects before or after presentation at national meetings
  • Presentation, discussion and brainstorming about current or planned informatics projects, databases, decision support systems in clinical, clinical research, biomarker discovery or other patient-related research areas
  • Networking opportunities in a collegial atmosphere as a supplement to other established activities
