The growing role of information technology within health care delivery has created the need to deepen the pool of informaticians who can help organizations maximize the effectiveness of their investment in information technology and in so doing maximize the impact on safety, quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of care.
The UCLA Health Resident Informaticist Program provides clinician trainees with a general understanding of Clinical and Health Informatics topics. The program embraces a practical, hands-on approach in order to attain tangible results. Monthly meetings cover a wide variety of topics and help provide a deeper understanding of how Health IT and Clinical Informatics can be leveraged to effectively utilize the EHR.
Additionally, resident informaticists complete an independent program practicum.
The estimated time commitment is 5-10 hours per month. The program will run from July to June. There is a programmatic stipend that we will make every effort to distribute. However, in light of recent developments, the stipend will be subject to available programmatic funds.
