Fellowship Reception


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. Other ACGME accredited programs can be found here.

We are excited to contribute to a long tradition of clinical informatics at Stanford dating to the founding of the biomedical informatics graduate program and are proud of our excellent fellowship experiences at institutions that have made applied clinical informatics a priority in patient care.

To Apply

Applications for the Stanford Clinical Informatics 2017 - 2019 class are closed. Information about applying for the 2018 - 2020 class will be posted in the summer of 2017.

2016 - 2018 Fellows in Clinical Informatics

Funded with generous support from an unrestricted grant from Hewlett Packard and the Stanford Department of Medicine.

Richard Medford MD–After completing medical school in Philadelphia, Richard returned to his home province of Ontario and completed training in Internal Medicine at Queen's University and Infectious Diseases at the University of Ottawa. His interest in Clinical Informatics first arose during the SARS outbreak which engulfed Toronto in 2003. Here, he helped develop and monitor a clinical database whereby all patient transfers within the province were screened for 'SARS-like' symptoms. His interest in informatics continued throughout residency and fellowship and most recently he developed a mobile application to help support an antimicrobial stewardship program.  Richard is excited to join the Stanford CI-Fellowship and hopes to explore how technology can truly affect healthcare on a broader level in this evolving era of medicine.  

Chethan Sarabu MD –A native of upstate New York, Chethan attended Cornell University where he majored in Landscape Architecture and Biology; exploring the intersection of urban design and health. He applied these skills as a user interface designer and researcher at their interaction design lab. During his Pediatrics residency at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson he contributed to the hospital EHR as a member of the physician’s advisory committee. His ongoing research project, Drawing Play explores the role of drawing in communicating with children at healthcare visits. Chethan is passionate about a wide range of issues but ultimately driven by advocating for children as he works at the intersection of pediatrics, public health, and informatics.

2015 - 2017 Fellows in Clinical Informatics

Funded with generous support from an unrestricted grant from Hewlett Packard and the Stanford Departments of Medicine, Emergency Medicine, and Surgery.

Yumi DiAngi MD–Yumi trained in internal medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and subsequently worked for five years in a full time outpatient practice in Northwestern PA, a federally designated medically underserved area.  Her interest in informatics developed from her experiences leveraging claims data to improve care processes in these clinics.  During this 2 year fellowship, she looks forward to understanding the full application of informatics within a large healthcare system and utilizing analytics tools to address critical gaps in patient care.

Yaniv Kerem MD – After graduating from Loyola University School of Medicine, Yaniv continued his medical training in emergency medicine at the University of Chicago. As Resident Director for Clinical Informatics, he worked closely with the hospital’s EMR team on a number of process design projects aimed at improving physician workflow and efficiency, including an optimization effort to design and upgrade computerized order sets and an evaluation of the need for a sepsis alert in the emergency department. Yaniv looks forward to playing an active role in the future of healthcare discovery and innovation as a member of the Stanford family.
