What is Clinical Informatics?

Clinical informatics (CI) is the application of information technology to healthcare delivery. It encompasses a wide range of topics including computerized order entry, clinical decision support, electronic clinical documentation, patient portals and much more. In 2011 the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) first recognized CI as a board-eligible subspecialty. In 2013 the first Clinical Informatics board exam was offered and already there are over 1,100 physicians that are board certified in Clinical Informatics.

Our Training Program

The Boston Children’s Hospital Clinical Informatics Fellowship Program is a two year, ACGME approved fellowship aimed at training the future leaders in healthcare informatics. We seek energetic clinicians interested in improving the care of pediatric patients through the use of innovative technology. Graduates of our program will have the skills required to pass the clinical informatics board exam, lead an operational project from start to finish, address pediatric-specific informatics issues such as weight-based dosing and adolescent confidentiality, and launch their careers in applied informatics.

Our fellowship training consists of:

Most fellows will also have the opportunity to practice patient care in their primary specialty area (e.g. general pediatrics, pediatric orthopedics etc)

We are particularly interested in candidates from pediatric training programs, though we will consider applications from graduates of non-pediatric training programs in certain circumstances (e.g. extensive experience with research in pediatrics)


CHIP

The Boston Children’s Hospital Computational Health Informatics Program (CHIP) is a research informatics group with a separate National Library of Medicine funded training program. There are numerous opportunities for collaboration between Clinical Informatics fellows and CHIP faculty/trainees, however applicants whose focus is on research informatics should consider applying to CHIP instead of (or in addition to) the Clinical Informatics Fellowship program.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
