The Cedars-Sinai Division of Informatics seeks outstanding applicants for a two-year, ACGME-accredited fellowship in Clinical Informatics to begin on July 1, 2020. The fellowship is open to residency graduates from any specialty who will be board-eligible or board certified prior to beginning fellowship training. Applications are accepted through ERAS. Upon completion, fellows will become eligible for board certification in Clinical Informatics.
The fellowship program includes rotations across Cedars-Sinai Health System (CSHS) working with over 15 different clinician informaticists (including seven physicians board-certified in Clinical Informatics) across several specialties and practice settings. CSHS includes three acute care hospitals, one acute rehabilitation hospital and multiple diverse outpatient practice settings. CSHS features a diverse representation of practice models, including employed, private practice and faculty physicians.
Rotations cover many areas across clinical informatics, including workflow analysis, design, and optimization, EHR implementation, change management, electronic health record (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. Didactic lectures will ensure exposure to all core content that may be covered on the Clinical Informatics board certification examination. To retain fellows’ clinical expertise and to promote familiarity with CSHS workflows, personnel and information systems, fellows will have protected time for clinical practice in their primary specialty. Fellows will also have the opportunity to work with startup companies participating in the Cedars-Sinai Healthcare Accelerator.
