In partnership with the University of Pennsylvania Institute of Biomedical Informatics, the Clinical Informatics Fellowship Program has expanded its list of participating faculty to include Dr. Kevin B. Johnson and Dr. Yevgeniy Gitelman. The program now offers elective rotations at Penn. Read more below.

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) clinical informatics fellowship welcomes applicants from all ACGME primary clinical specialties. Three fellowship positions are awarded each year. Fellows experience the practice of clinical informatics in inpatient, ambulatory, emergency, and other care settings. During rotations, fellows work closely with distinguished faculty on projects in clinical decision support, data analytics/science, and innovation. As part of this collaborative program with the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) Institute for Biomedical Informatics, fellows earn either a Certificate in Biomedical Informatics or a Master's degree in Biomedical Informatics and engage in mentored opportunities to pursue research and other scholarly activities. CHOP and Penn are committed to developing our future leaders of the healthcare industry. Upon successful completion of the program, the Clinical Informatics Fellow can expect to:

  • Master the Core Content set forth by the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) for the Subspecialty of Clinical Informatics.
  • Acquire a complete understanding of the different domains of informatics and how they apply to the practice within the field of Clinical Informatics.
  • Be prepared to successfully pass the board certification examination for the Subspecialty in Clinical Informatics.
  • Maintain skills and certification in their primary clinical specialty. The program will work with the fellow to define appropriate "moonlighting" opportunities.

Three Clinical Informatics Fellowship positions are awarded each year. Please read this invitation letter from the Clinical Informatics Fellowship Program's director.
