After six years, there are now more than 1700 physicians board-certified in the subspecialty of clinical informatics. Physicians from all 24 medical specialties are eligible to apply to sit for the board certification exam.
For physician informaticians working in the field of clinical informatics, the opportunity to become certified required a personal study plan. Most physicians who passed the board also participated in the AMIA Clinical Informatics Board Review Courses—CIBRC Live and CIBRC Online Plus.
