The Clinical Informatics Fellowship is a 2-year program that provides ACGME-approved training in all aspects of clinical informatics. The program is administered through the Yale Department of Emergency Medicine. In the first year, the fellow will rotate between the Yale-New Haven Health and Veterans Affairs. Major blocks will be devoted to electronic health records, clinical decision support, databases and data analysis, and quality and safety. Experiential learning will be combined with didactic classes and conferences. The second year is dedicated to advanced learning and project leadership. The fellow will attend the American Medical Informatics Association annual meeting. The program prepares fellows for the Clinical Informatics Board examination.

For further information, contact Ted Melnick, MD, MHS, (Program Director) or Ann Criscuolo, (Program Coordinator).

About the Yale Center for Medical Informatics

The Yale Center for Medical Informatics focuses on the creative, novel use of computers in clinical medicine, molecular biology, neuroscience, and other areas of biomedical research. We conduct research, provide support and coordinate collaborative projects involving Medical School faculty, Yale-New Haven Hospital, and faculty in other departments at Yale, such as Computer Science.

The Center also serves as a focal point for training in biomedical informatics with a Postdoctoral Fellowship Program and the affiliated Informatics Fellowship Program at the West Haven VA. In addition, we participate actively in Yale's interdepartmental PhD program in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. Please visit the Yale Center for Informatics website for more information.
