Clinical Informatics Fellowship

Clinical Informatics Fellowship

Nationwide Children's Hospital and The Ohio State University offers a two-year Clinical Informatics Fellowship for qualified physicians who are board-certified in any primary specialty who wish to improve health care and health outcomes for patients and populations.

In conjunction with The Ohio State University, Nationwide Children’s Hospital offers a Clinical Informatics Fellowship with initial accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). This program will train physicians in this relatively new subspecialty of medicine. Through their work, clinical informaticians lead teams that develop, implement and optimize electronic health records (EHRs) and related health information systems, with the goal of improving health care and health outcomes for patients and populations.
