About Us


The two-year ACGME-accredited program provides comprehensive training to become a leader in clinical informatics as well as laboratory informatics and informatics research and education. Fellows gain training and experience in fundamental concepts, technology, application, management and other areas related to clinical informatics. A program goal, aligned with those of Baylor College of Medicine, is to develop professionals who can apply the principles and knowledge of clinical informatics to advance healthcare at both the individual and population levels, to further clinical informatics education and to make important contributions to clinical informatics research. Fellowship rotations provides experience and project opportunities in electronic records, laboratory information systems, data analytics, clinical decision support, database architecture, quality and utilization tracking and improvement, interoperability, and other related areas. Fellows have opportunities to participate in research, clinical and research conferences, informatics journal clubs, and digital pathology and telepathology initiatives.
