Clinical Informatics Fellowship
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia's Clinical Informatics Fellowship was one of the first programs in the nation to be accredited in 2017. We invite you to apply to participate in this opportunity. Two clinical informatics fellowship positions are available. We accept candidates from all ACGME primary clinical specialties. The two-year program includes both didactic and rotational training. The fellows are prepared for certification in the clinical informatics subspecialty and equipped to be a practicing informatician, leader, and innovator in academic, healthcare, and industry settings. 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.
