Clinical Informatics Fellowship Program
Welcome to Stony Brook University Hospital’s Department of Biomedical Informatics and the Clinical Informatics fellowship program.
The Stony Brook Fellowship in Clinical Informatics is a 2-year ACGME accredited program open to physicians who are ABMS board certified or board eligible in a primary specialty. The CI Fellowship is offered through Stony Brook Medicine’s Pathology Department; it is open to eligible candidates from any medical specialty(e.g. Internal Medicine, Anesthesiology, Pathology, Pediatrics, Surgery, Radiology etc.). Our first complement of fellows will be graduating July 2021 and we are currently recruiting for the academic year 2021-2023.
Our department is dually housed in the School of Medicine and the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and also has a strong collaborative relationship with Stony Brook Medicine Information technology department. Thus, our program is ideally positioned to offer an environment of interdisciplinary collaboration between clinicians, clinical informaticians, clinical data scientists, pathology and radiology informaticians and machine learning experts. It is the ideal program for motivated physicians seeking in-depth expertise in clinical informatics along with applications of clinical data analytics and machine learning to the field of healthcare.
Stony Brook University Hospital, a 624 bed tertiary care center and a premier academic medical center serves as the primary clinical site for the fellows. It has been nominated as one of the nation’s Most-Wired hospitals for 7 consecutive years and is constantly at the forefront of implementing innovative IT solutions to clinical problems. During the COVID-19 pandemic in the spring of 2020, the department quickly rose to the challenge and working together with SBMIT, rapidly expanded tele-health capabilities and also developed a comprehensive COVID-19 Data Commons for research.
