Clinical Informatics Fellowship at Stanford

In September of 2011, the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) approved Clinical Informatics (CI) as a board-eligible subspecialty through sponsorship by the American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM). For more information about the clinical informatics subspecialty, please visit the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) website.

For the first five years, it is possible to become board-eligible based on substantial practice rather than a formal fellowship. After 2017, board eligibility will require completion of an ACGME-accredited fellowship program in clinical informatics. We are pleased to announce that we are the first clinical informatics fellowship in the nation to receive ACGME accreditation. We have partnered with Oregon Heath & Science University (OHSU) to provide didactic support through the clinical informatics graduate certificate program.

We are pleased to continue a long tradition of clinical informatics at Stanford dating to the founding of the biomedical informatics graduate program and are planning an excellent fellowship experience at institutions that have made applied clinical informatics a priority in patient care (e.g. see http://www.lpch.org/aboutus/news/releases/2010/cpoe-research.html, http://www.lpch.org/aboutus/news/releases/2011/hp-dashboard.html, and http://www.lpch.org/aboutus/news/releases/2011/emr.html).

2014 - 2016 HP Fellows in Clinical Informatics

Funded with generous support from an unrestricted grant from Hewlett Packard

Lance Downing – A Bay Area native, Dr. Downing attended Rhodes College and majored in economics before returning to work in enterprise software. Drawn to the humanistic ideals of medicine, Lance then traveled to the midwest to attend medical school at Case Western University, returning to Palo Alto as a resident in Internal Medicine at Stanford. Here, he has worked on projects ranging from a hospital wide mission to improve the treatment of severe infections to studying the epidemiology of disease and healthcare delivery among farm workers. He joins the Clinical Informatics Fellowship excited to address the challenge of improving healthcare in an era of medicine increasingly interconnected with healthcare information systems.

Veena Goel – Veena was born and raised in Canada, attended medical school in Arizona, and completed pediatric residency at Stanford in 2013. In July 2013, she became the first fellow in Pediatric Hospital Medicine (PHM) at Stanford. Her scholarship focuses on improving bedside monitor alarm fatigue, which was recently declared a National Patient Safety Goal by the Joint Commission. In this work, she is leveraging a unique data set at Stanford Children's in collaboration with a PhD student in the biomedical informatics training program. Working with the PHM fellowship directors, Drs. Carrie Rassbach and Becky Blankenburg, we are pleased to have developed a curriculum that will allow Veena to simultaneously complete both the CI and PHM fellowships by the end of June 2016.
