The Partners Clinical Informatics and Innovation Fellowship
|The Partners Clinical Informatics and Innovation fellowship is a two-year training program designed to train physicians as leaders in clinical informatics. Participants will acquire the knowledge and skills to begin successful careers dedicated to analyzing, designing, implementing, optimizing, and evaluating information and communication systems that enhance individual and population health outcomes, improve health care delivery, and strengthen the clinician-patient relationship. Graduates will be prepared to lead health information technology strategy and implementation projects, advance the field’s knowledge base, and train the next generation.
The Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Massachusetts General Hospital are teaching affiliates of Harvard Medical School with a rich tradition of health information technology innovation, including leading the development and evaluation of computerized physician order entry, clinical decision support, and electronic medication administration and reconciliation. Fellows will be actively engaged in the ongoing rich information technology innovation activities at Partners Healthcare, including the implementation of a new enterprise electronic health record (Epic) and enterprise laboratory information system (Sunquest). The fellowship has been approved by the Partners Education Committee and we plan to seek ACGME accreditation. Graduates of the program will be eligible to sit for the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) Clinical Informatics board examination.
