Clinical Informatics Fellowship

We are pleased to announce that the Clinical Informatics Fellowship at Washington University School of Medicine is now accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Applications will open in September for fellows eligible to begin the fellowship in July. Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Andrea Krussel, Program Manager at I2.

Clinical informatics is the newest American Board of Medical Specialty subspecialty, which focuses on biomedical data, computational systems and clinical process improvement applied to the practice of medicine. This fellowship program is designed to meet the training requirements for ACGME board certification in clinical informatics and includes graduate coursework in biomedical informatics.

Fellows participate in the design and implementation of electronic health records and clinical decision support systems at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Fellows also participate in research to advance the science of applied clinical informatics, including presentations at local and national meetings as well as scientific papers for publication and grant application.

Applications are being accepted through Friday, December 14, 2018, for applicants interested in a July 1, 2019, start date. Applicants must have completed, or will complete, an ABMS-certified specialty by the fellowship start date. This is a two-year fellowship. Diplomates in the specialty of pathology may be allowed to compete the Clinical Informatics Fellowship simultaneously with a separate one-year pathology fellowship over the course of two years, provided they are accepted into both fellowships at Washington University.

In order to be considered for the fellowship, please send the following information via email:

  1. Resume or CV
  2. Personal statement (no longer than one page)
  3. Two to three letters of recommendation
  4. USMLE scores (all steps)

Program alumnus and inaugural fellow, Dr. Kevin O’Bryan, completed the fellowship in June 2016. He is currently an instructor in pediatrics and serves as a pediatric hospitalist for Washington University School of Medicine.
