The Massachusetts General Hospital Clinical Informatics Fellowship Program, based in Pathology, seeks to train pathologists to become leaders in Clinical Informatics, Bioinformatics and Imaging.
The Massachusetts General Hospital Fellowship in Clinical Informatics is based in the Department of Pathology and enjoys strong collaborations with the Pathology Department at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and across the Partners Healthcare System. It is an ACGME Clinical Informatics program certified by the American Board of Pathology in 2016.
The program began in 2008 as the Partners Healthcare System's Integrated Program in Pathology Informatics, a collaboration of the Pathology Departments of Mass General, the Brigham and Women's Hospital and the North Shore Medical Center. Since 2009, it has graduated 17 fellows, the great majority of which are running pathology and molecular informatics programs across the country.
The Mass General Fellowship in Clinical Informatics trains physicians to become leaders in clinical informatics, clinically relevant bioinformatics and imaging. Our educational philosophy considers informatics a natural part of medical practice and central to medicine's future, and our program's architecture provides exposure to multiple, independent faculty, a wide variety of clinical operations, research consistent with long term career goals, formal courses and seminars, and a level of responsibility appropriate to experience and skill. It works closely with the Brigham and Women's Based Partners Clinical Informatics and Innovation Fellowship, and a variety of educational resources in the Boston area, to create the best possible educational experience to our fellows.
After finishing the Informatics Fellowship, fellows will have a broad understanding of pathology informatics as well as deep knowledge in at least one informatics subspecialty; and will have the skills necessary to lead a pathology informatics service at a major medical center and execute a successful academic/research career.

Candidates should have completed their residency training in anatomic, clinical or combined anatomic/clinical pathology, with primary certification or eligibility by the American Board of Pathology. If not a U.S. citizen or green card holder, the candidate should have a valid ECFMG certificate and visa.
In some cases, fellows will be accepted before they are board-eligible. Such candidates must qualify for a limited (training) license in Massachusetts, present compelling reasons that the fellowship should be done prior to finishing residency and have concrete plans for finishing their pathology residency training.
Accepting applications for 2022-2023, beginning July 1, 2020 through October 31, 2020.
