Have you ever been to boot camp? The American Medical Informatics Association holds a boot camp for physicians who hold leadership positions.  How would you answer this question: Are you a physician in a leadership role at a health care provider organization?
CMIO Boot Camp is designed for Chief Medical Information Officers who want to broaden and deepen their understanding, knowledge and skills in biomedical and health informatics and the current challenges in using EHRs in the health system.
Two CMIO Boot Camps are scheduled in 2010:
Spring Boot Camp
March 24-27, 2010
Hyatt Regency Coconut Point
Bonita Springs, FL
Fall Boot Camp
September 29-October 2, 2010
The whole concept of a boot camp is quite creative. Can you imagine the conversation at work? So, where did you go for the weekend? Oh, I was at boot camp...
AMIA’s pilot CMIO Boot Camp was so successful last October that there is an on-demand schedule of two more boot camps to be rolled out in 2010.  The Spring Boot Camp for CMIOs will take place March 24-27, at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa in Bonita Springs, Fla.  Its focus, Achieving Meaningful EHR Use, will provide a comprehensive, engaging experience for physicians embarking on CMIO leadership roles. The four-day program will provide CMIOs or those aspiring to that role with knowledge and tools essential to take the reins. CME is available. Visit for more information.
