The Regenstrief Institute, an internationally recognized leader in medical informatics and health services research, offers National Library of Medicine supported fellowships in the use of computer technology to improve the quality and delivery of healthcare. Interacting closely with faculty mentors, fellows participate in a two-year (with optional third year) comprehensive training program to prepare for roles in developing, implementing and studying clinical information systems.
The medical informatics fellowship is designed for physicians, other clinicians holding doctorates, and PhDs in relevant fields, with previous computer experience who desire to become part of a community of scholars and clinicians at the forefront of medical and technological innovations.
The Regenstrief fellowship is an exceptional opportunity for those with strong programming skills and experience or interest in higher level languages (Java, C++ and others) who wish to have an immediate impact on patient care.
Participate in the development of real world clinical systems at the Regenstrief Institute, an innovator in medical informatics. The primary intent of this fellowship is to train fellows for careers in medical informatics research positions in academic or state and federal government programs, although graduates are also sought after by the health care and the medical systems development industry.
Fellows gain hands-on experience with the dynamic Regenstrief Medical Records System, a large city-wide clinical database and world class infrastructure and with federally funded medical and bioinformatics grant projects. These grant projects include the Shared Pathology Information Network, the Indianapolis Network for Patient Care, the Logical Observations Identifiers Names and Codes (LOINC®) and Next Generation Internet application to telemedicine in clinical settings and nursing homes.
