Program description

Mayo Clinic offers the Clinical Informatics Fellowship in Rochester, Minnesota, to train physicians for specialization in clinical informatics. This 24-month program is designed to prepare you for a leadership role in the operation of clinical institutions, particularly the role of chief medical informatics officer.

The mission of the Clinical Informatics Fellowship is to train the world's most skilled and respected clinical informatics experts by:

This fellowship builds on the leading role that Mayo Clinic has played in the field of clinical information management since Dr. Henry S.

Since then, Mayo Clinic has continued to invest in information management and has one of the largest self-contained information technology support systems of any health care enterprise in the world.

With unprecedented access to clinical information and resources at Mayo Clinic, you have every opportunity to succeed as a leader in the emerging field of clinical informatics.
