In September of 2011, the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) approved Clinical Informatics (CI) as a board-eligible subspecialty through sponsorship by the American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM). For more information about the clinical informatics subspecialty, please visit the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) website.
For the first five years, it is possible to become board-eligible based on substantial practice rather than a formal fellowship. After 2017, board eligibility will require completion of an ACGME-accredited fellowship program in clinical informatics. We are pleased to announce that we are the first clinical informatics fellowship in the nation to receive ACGME accreditation. We have partnered with Oregon Heath & Science University (OHSU) to provide didactic support through the clinical informatics graduate certificate program.
We are pleased to continue a long tradition of clinical informatics at Stanford dating to the founding of the biomedical informatics graduate program and are planning an excellent fellowship experience at institutions that have made applied clinical informatics a priority in patient care (e.g. see http://www.lpch.org/aboutus/news/releases/2010/cpoe-research.html, http://www.lpch.org/aboutus/news/releases/2011/hp-dashboard.html, and http://www.lpch.org/aboutus/news/releases/2011/emr.html).
