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.

Here you can find links to the publications and events covered in each years' session:
Please note that the inclusion of articles in the Year in Review sessions is the result of an informal process modulated by the judgment of the presenter, and does not represent any organizational statement or position of the American Medical Informatics Association.  Your mileage may vary.  Enjoy!
