The Yale/VA ACGME Clinical Informatics Fellowship is a 2-year program open to all ABMS board certified and board eligible applicants as a pathway to ABPM board certification in Clinical Informatics. The program is administered through the Yale Department of Emergency Medicine with informatics training experiences split between the Yale-New Haven Health and Veterans Affairs.

Experiential learning is combined with didactic classes and conferences with the option to complete a Masters of Health Sciences in informatics at Yale. The two sites offer exposure to a wide variety of complementary faculty, information systems, research, operational activities, informatics content, and training experiences. Major rotations include electronic health records, clinical decision support, databases and data analysis, quality and safety, and pathology informatics. Longitudinal experiences include data science seminars, leadership training, and research projects.

The second year is dedicated to advanced learning and project leadership. Fellows attend the American Medical Informatics Association annual meeting in their second year. The program prepares fellows for the Clinical Informatics Board examination. Previous fellows have careers in research, operations, and industry.

For further information, contact Ted Melnick, MD, MHS (Program Director) or Lisa Courtney (Interim Program Coordinator). Apply through ERAS by October 1 and participate in the AMIA match in mid-December.
