Leading the way: Clinical Informatics fellowship up and running
December 9, 2014
The School of Medicine is pleased to announce that its Clinical Informatics Fellowship Program is accepting applications for its inaugural class of fellows through January 15, 2015.
OHSU is just the third program in the country to receive accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Several other programs are also in the process of seeking accreditation, and a number of them will be using OHSU distance learning course materials for the didactic portion of their programs. The new specialty was launched in 2013, with physicians already working in the field able to sit for the certification exam by meeting prior practice requirements. Starting in 2018, this "grandfathering" pathway will go away, and only those completing an ACGME-accredited fellowship will be board-eligible. Last year, seven OHSU faculty physicians became board-certified in the new clinical informatics subspecialty.
