Tiffany Veinot has been elected as Fellow of the American College of Medical Informatics (ACMI), recognizing her significant, sustained contributions to the field of medical informatics at the national and international levels. 

The process of becoming an ACMI fellow is exhaustive, requiring a minimum 10 years of major scientific contributions to the field and rigorous scholarly scrutiny from peers.

"I am grateful to receive this support from my colleagues in the field,” says Veinot. “I also thank my wonderful collaborators: students, postdoctoral fellows, other faculty, and clinical and community partners. This could not have been possible without you."

Veinot, along with 13 other inductees, was honored on Nov. 6 at ceremonies during the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) 2022 Annual Symposium.

“I am thrilled to welcome these 14 new, highly-accomplished ACMI Fellows to the College,” said ACMI President Genevieve Melton-Meaux in a statement. “Their contributions across our field, and more broadly contributions to biomedicine, are integral to the advancement of health and healthcare. These 14 fellows will carry the FACMI designation, one of the highest honors in the field of biomedical informatics.”

Tiffany Veinot, MLS, PhD is associate dean for faculty at the University of Michigan School of Information. She is also a full professor at the Schools of Information and Public Health at U-M. Her research focuses on community health informatics, or the use of information systems and services to improve the health of marginalized populations and reduce health disparities.

Veinot is a founding faculty member and former director of the Master of Health Informatics (MHI) program at the University of Michigan, which was launched in 2012.

She is also an associate editor for the International Journal of Medical Informatics and on the editorial boards of the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA), and Journal of the Association of Information Science and Technology. Through editorial work and conference/workshop organization, she has also taken leadership in building scholarly communities for health equity-oriented research in informatics..
