The AMIA Clinical Informatics Fellows’ (ACIF) Retreat takes place at the AMIA Clinical Informatics Conference. It brings together fellows from ACGME-accredited clinical informatics fellowship programs across the U.S. The objectives of the retreat are to:
- Provide practice-based individual and small group exercises in various aspects of clinical informatics and physician leadership based on ACGME program requirements;
- Expose the fellows to informatics scenarios and issues that they may not get to experience during the 2 years of their training; and
- Facilitate networking for fellows nationally to encourage cross-program communications and collaborations.
The ACIF Retreats were envisioned and have been led by Dr. Bruce Levy, program director for the Geisinger Clinical Informatics Fellowship, since 2016. Rotating faculty from multiple different clinical informatics fellowship programs contribute content to the retreat. In 2018 the ACIF retreat became associated with AMIA’s Clinical Informatics Conference as its permanent home.
While the complete agenda for the 2020 retreat is not yet available, a special afternoon interactive session on Cybersecurity in Healthcare will be led by John Riggi, Senior Advisor for Cybersecurity and Risk for the American Hospital Association and retired FBI agent, and Steve Dunkle, Chief Information Security Officer for Geisinger.
We apologize to the broader provider informatician community, but this is a special educational session for the clinical informatics fellows and registration is restricted to fellows from ACGME-accredited clinical informatics fellowship programs.
Registration to the AMIA 2020 Clinical Informatics Conference is required to attend this retreat.
