Clinical informatics is one of the newest specialties of the American Board of Medical Specialty, which focuses on biomedical data, computational systems and clinical process improvement applied to the practice of medicine. This fellowship program is designed to meet the training requirements for ACGME board certification in clinical informatics and includes graduate coursework in biomedical informatics.


The clinical informatics fellowship received initial accreditation by the American Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in May 2016. One pathology informatics fellow has graduated from the fellowship, with one more graduating in 2022. We support combined fellowships in accordance with American Board of Pathology requirements (2 fellowships completed in 2 years).


Fellows participate in the design and implementation of electronic health records and clinical decision support systems at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Fellows also participate in research opportunities to advance the science of applied clinical health informatics, including presentations at local and national meetings, as well as scientific papers for publication and grant application.


Training covers both adult and pediatric patients at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospitals, both of which use the Epic electronic health record system and Cerner Millennium laboratory information system. Trainees will also spend one month working at the John J. Cochran Veterans Hospital.


Fellows must have completed an ACGME-accredited residency in any specialty. Please contact us for further details.


Applications to the clinical informatics fellowship program must be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). The fellowship can be found on the ERAS/AAMC website under Clinical Informatics (Pediatrics). Paper applications will not be accepted.
