More about the Clinical Informatics Fellowship

Our Approach

Our graduates are set up for success.

We have designed our program to equip graduates with the knowledge and skills they will need to be successful no matter their ultimate career destination, whether it be in clinical practice, leadership, government or industry. Our fellows work directly with a diverse group of physician informaticists, operational and health IT leaders, clinical and business analysts, and clinical end users to acquire a deep working knowledge of key health information technologies, workflows and methods used within the clinical setting across the continuum of patient care and related administrative activities. All this through a combination of practical hands-on work, focused didactics and guided self-exploration.

During the two-year program, fellows will be exposed to a wide range of informatics topics, including:

  • clinical documentation
  • orders management
  • clinical decision support
  • population health management
  • quality improvement and patient safety
  • information privacy and security
  • revenue cycle and health finance
  • data reporting, analytics and data science
  • pathology, imaging and pharmacy informatics
  • systems infrastructure and interoperability
  • change and project management
  • end-user education, training and support

Our fellows also enjoy at least six months of electives to explore these areas in more depth, to engage in additional quality improvement or research activities, and to gain experience in a specialized informatics domain.
