Clinical Informatics Fellowship

Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) is pleased to offer 2-year ACGME accredited Clinical Informatics Fellowship positions through MetroHealth’s Center for Clinical Informatics Research and Education.

Based at MetroHealth, this fellowship exposes fellows to informatics opportunities at Cleveland Clinic, the MetroHealth System, and University Hospitals of Cleveland. These fellowship positions are open to physicians who will have completed a residency prior to starting the fellowship.

The MetroHealth System is a unique place to participate in a Clinical Informatics Fellowship because MetroHealth was the first public healthcare system install the Epic electronic health record, starting in 1999. It was also the first public healthcare system with Epic to achieve the Healthcare Information Management and System Society (HIMSS) Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM) Stage 7 (highest stage) in all of its hospitals and ambulatory clinics in 2014 (revalidated in 2017 and 2020).

Currently the MetroHealth System is in the top 1% nationally of healthcare systems in terms of implementation and use of this EHRs based on HIMSS data. In a 2021 KLAS Arch collaborative survey of physicians and nurses the MetroHealth Epic EHR implementation was in the 97thpercentile of all EHR implementations in the US.

Cleveland Clinic is also a long-standing Epic customer, initially going live in 2002. University Hospitals of Cleveland will be fully transitioned to the Epic electronic health record by the end of 2023.

The fellowship is designed to provide physicians with clinical informatics training and experience to complement their clinical training. The fellowship is ideally suited to help prepare trainees to be board-eligible in Clinical Informatics.

This fellowship is intended to prepare practicing medical professionals for careers in clinical informatics where they would continue their clinical work along with non-clinical roles in administering, developing, implementing, and using health information technology systems.
