The Departments of Biomedical and Health Informatics and Pediatrics is pleased to welcome our 2017 Clinical Informatics Fellows.

Adam Dziorney, MD, PhD

Adam Dziorny, MD, PhD completed his pediatric residency and Chief Residency here at CHOP and is currently a first year fellow in the Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program. Adam also has the distinction of being the first (and only fellow nationally) approved by the American Board of Pediatrics and the American Board of Preventive Medicine for a "dual fellowship” in both disciplines. He completed his undergraduate work at Johns Hopkins University with majors in Biomedical Engineering and Computer Science. He then traveled to the University of Rochester Medical Center for their combined MD - PhD training program, where he earned a PhD in Biomedical Engineering studying the impact of an augmented acoustic environment on the mouse central and peripheral auditory system. After a post-doctoral fellowship in the Department of Toxicology, he earned his medical degree in 2012 and entered residency in Pediatrics at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Adam completed residency in 2015 and stayed for a year as chief resident in Pediatrics before beginning his Pediatric Critical Care fellowship. His research interests involve the integration of informatics, technology and critical care medicine to improve provider efficiency and patient care, with a focus on optimization of laboratory testing in the pediatric critical care environment.

Mark Mai, MD

Mark Mai, MD completed his undergraduate studies at Swarthmore College, where he majored in linguistics and developmental biology. He went on to pursue his medical degree at Yale University, during which he received a Doris Duke Clinical Research Fellowship that focused on using machine learning algorithms and text mining to predict viral test outcomes. He continued his informatics education while a pediatric resident here at CHOP and was the first resident to pursue the “Advanced Skills” track in Informatics. As a resident, he was an active member of the New Epic Resident Development (NERD) Squad, before taking the reins when Evan Orenstein moved onto his fellowship. He also has many scholarly publications and presentations in informatics and has a keen interest in the application of natural language processing to improving the practice of medicine.
