BIDMC received its initial accreditation for the clinical informatics training program. While the fellowship program has been around since 1974, and has been enjoyed longstanding support by the National Library of Medicine, ACMGE accreditation is new. Clinical Informatics has recently become a board certified field, and as part of future eligibility, physicians must complete an ACGME accredited program to be eligible to sit for the exam. ACGME accredidation for BIDMC entailed a reconfiguration of the fellowship, with experiences that span four departments, including Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Pathology, and Health Care Quality.
