of Biomedical Informatics has a 3-fold mission: to educate undergraduate,
graduate, and postgraduate trainees in the theory and practice of biomedical
informatics; to develop and evaluate innovative technologies for the storage,
retrieval, dissemination, and application of biomedical knowledge, in order
to support clinical practice, research, life-long learning, and administration
and as a result, to contribute to the professional body of knowledge regarding
biomedical informatics; and t o maintain cooperation and collegiality with all
those who learn and work with us locally, nationally, and internationally; and,
to develop and disseminate ethical and professional standards for the conduct
