Clinical informaticians transform health care practices by harnessing the power of data and technology to optimize workflow, improve clinical processes, support clinical decision-making, and enhance patient outcomes.

The Clinical Informatics fellowship program at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is a two-year program, which includes both didactic and rotational training. Upon successful completion of the program, the fellows are prepared for certification in the clinical informatics subspecialty and equipped to be a practicing informatician, leader, and innovator in academic, healthcare, and industry settings.

Fellows have the unique opportunity to experience the “practice” of clinical informatics by actively participating as members of informatics teams at CHOP, including focused informatics rotational experiences in inpatient, ambulatory, emergency, and other care settings. They work closely with distinguished board-certified faculty, on groundbreaking projects during rotations in clinical decision support, data analytics/science, and innovation. Fellows complete a Masters Certificate in Informatics and have ample mentored opportunities to pursue research and scholarly activities. External rotations at Penn and other national/international institutions are also available.

The CHOP fellowship is one of only four clinical informatics fellowships focused on pediatrics. Two fellowship positions are awarded each year. Currently, there are four Clinical Informatics Fellows at CHOP with two additional fellows joining the program in July 2017. CHOP’s Fellowship Program in Clinical Informatics is a two-year program, which includes both didactic and rotational training.

Upon successful completion of the program, the Clinical Informatics Fellow can expect to:

  • Master the Core Content set forth by the ACGME for the Subspecialty of Clinical Informatics
  • Acquire a complete understanding of the different domains of informatics and how they apply to the practice of Clinical Informatics
