Application Process




Introduction to Fellowship Applications

Physicians who will have completed a primary specialty with an interest in clinical informatics are encouraged to apply to our fellowship program. Formal training in computer science or equivalent self-directed learning is encouraged. Competitive applicants will be familiar with computer science, programming, and fundamentals of data science and statistics, with the expectation that they will develop skills particular to healthcare data science and evaluation methodology / biostatistics as they proceed through the program. 

Candidates must be ABMS certified or board-eligible before their expected start date. 

We unfortunately are not able to accommodate other post-doctoral fellows outside of our established informatics training program.


Please familiarize yourself with information about funding for the informatics fellowship program prior to application.
