Clinical Informatics Seeking First Fellow

For the first time, the Division of Informatics has received accreditation from the American Medical Informatics Association for a Clinical Informatics Fellowship. The division is actively seeking its first fellow to begin July 1, 2019, and is open to residency graduates from any specialty.

"Physician informaticists frequently function as a liaison between clinicians and Enterprise Information Services," said Joshua Pevnick, MD, program director of the Clinical Informatics Fellowship. "They provide an invaluable service of communicating directly with other physicians about workflow changes and new technologies, while understanding how any change may impact patient care and organizational excellence."

The two-year fellowship program includes rotations across Cedars-Sinai, working with over 15 different Cedars-Sinai-based clinician informaticists (including seven physicians board-certified in clinical informatics) across several specialties and practice settings. Upon completion, fellows will become eligible for board certification in clinical informatics.

Rotations cover many areas across clinical informatics, including workflow analysis, design, and optimization, electronic health record (EHR) implementation, change management, EHR usability, system build, clinical decision support, quality and performance assessment and improvement, data analytics, research informatics, data security, interoperability, research, leadership, pharmacy informatics and pathology informatics.
