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 to the Washington University Clinical Informatics Fellowship Program for the 2019 cycle must be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).  The fellowship can be found on the ERAS/AAMC website under Clinical Informatics (Pediatrics).  Paper applications will not be accepted.  Applications for July 2019 will be reviewed on a rolling basis until November 15, 2018; early applications are encouraged.
