The Massachusetts General Hospital/Brigham and Women’s Hospital (MGH/BWH) Clinical Informatics Fellowship at Mass General Brigham (MGB) is an ACGME-accredited program designed to train physicians as future leaders in clinical informatics. Fellows acquire the knowledge and practice the skills to lead health information technology strategy and implementation projects, advance the field’s knowledge base, and train the next generation. Fellows are actively engaged in didactics, scholarly activity, and the rich and innovative information technology activities at Mass General Brigham. Our program offers three fellowship tracks: a full two-year track that is open to physicians in any medical specialty, an integrated training experience (ITE) for fellows (non-pathology) wanting to combine a research year from another fellowship with their informatics training, and a combined fellowship track, that is open to pathology-trained physicians only. For more information, please see the Curriculum and Apply sections. 

Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital are teaching affiliates of Harvard Medical School with a rich tradition of health information technology innovation, including leading the development and evaluation of computerized physician order entry, clinical decision support, digital workflows, and electronic medication administration and reconciliation. Fellows will have the opportunity to engage in information systems and clinical informatics efforts across the Mass General Brigham system. 

The Pathology Informatics Fellowship program began in 2008, originating in the Department of Pathology at Massachusetts General Hospital under John Gilbertson, MD and was accredited by the ACGME as a Clinical Informatics Fellowship program in 2015. The Clinical Informatics and Innovation Fellowship program was created in 2015 by Adam Landman, MD, MS, MIS, MHS at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The two programs merged in 2020-2021 to create the combined MGH/BWH Clinical Informatics Fellowship. In total, the program now has over 25 fellows who have gone on to become successful leaders in their respective fields.
