Innovations in Musculoskeletal Pain Administration, Analytics, and Care Training (IMPA2CT)
The IMPA2CT fellowship provides advanced training in healthcare policy, administration and informatics related to the management of musculoskeletal pain disorders. The program aims to attract individuals of exceptional management potential and develop them into leaders in the analysis and administration of healthcare system programs related to musculoskeletal pain disorders with a focus on innovative nonpharmacological approaches. The goal of the fellowship is to prepare graduates for future careers in healthcare policy and/or administration.
The fellowship is a partnership between the Yale Center for Medical Informatics and the VA Connecticut Healthcare System. It is a full-time program of 2 years duration. Much of the fellow’s initial efforts 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 focuses on advanced learning and project leadership. The Program Director will work with each fellow to create an Individual Development Plan to guide training activities and allow for continuous development anchored to the program’s mission, goals, objectives, and needs, as well as the fellow’s career goals. The fellow will attend the American Medical Informatics Association annual meeting and other relevant conferences.
