In 2005 the Scientific Program Committee of the AMIA Annual Symposium launched the idea of a "year in review" session. The overall approach mirrored that of other professional societies such as the American College of Physicians, where invited speakers provided a synoptic review of notable new literature in various subspecialties of medicine, with a primary focus on newly reported interventional clinical trials that had relevance for health care decision making. The AMIA analog of this approach includes three components: a standardized PubMed search for randomized clinical trials of information systems tools and methods; a message to fellows on the American College of Medical Informatics (AMIA's honorary College) listserv calling for nominations of new articles they found particularly useful and interesting during the year, and a David Letterman-style "Top [N] events of the year" in Informatics as nominated by College fellows.
