Clinical Informatics is the study of information technology and how it can be applied to the health care field. It includes the study and practice of an information-based approach to health care delivery in which data must be structured in a certain way to be effectively retrieved and used in a report or evaluation.
The clinical informatics fellowship at IU School of Medicine applies technologic tools to health care. This ACGME-accredited fellowship is for physicians who wish to improve and study the impact of technology upon health care. These training programs provide a unique skill set that allow physicians to implement system-wide changes to impact the care of all patients.
This fellowship is housed within the Regenstrief Institute Center for Biomedical Informatics, an internationally recognized leader in biomedical informatics. Leadership and faculty for this fellowship program are shared between IU School of Medicine and the Regenstrief Institute.
