The Mass General Brigham Clinical Informatics Fellowship is a training program designed to train physicians as leaders in clinical informatics. Fellows acquire the knowledge and practice the skills to lead health information technology strategy and implementation projects, advance the field’s knowledge base, and train the next generation. Fellows are actively engaged in didactics, networking, and the rich information technology innovation activities at Mass General Brigham (formerly called Partners HealthCare). We offer two informatics training tracks: Pathology Informatics and Applied Clinical Informatics (see Apply section for details). We are an ACGME accredited program and graduates of our program will be eligible to sit for the ABMS Clinical Informatics board exam.
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 have the opportunity to engage in information systems and clinical informatics efforts across the Mass General Brigham system.
The Mass General Brigham Clinical Informatics Fellowship program began in 2008, originating in the Department of Pathology at the Massachusetts General Hospital. It was accredited by the ACGME as a Clinical Informatics program in 2016. The Applied Clinical Informatics Fellowship program began in 2015 and merged with the MGH Pathology Clinical Informatics Fellowship to create the combined Mass General Brigham Clinical Informatics Fellowship in 2020. In total, we now have over 23 graduates, who have gone on to become successful leaders in their respective fields.
