The CTSI is offering a subsidy to faculty who are interested in obtaining Clinical Informatics Board Certification. Board certification is available for physicians who have participated in clinical informatics related activities for 25 percent FTE in three of the last five years. After 2022, board certification will require the completion of a two-year fellowship. Details of the requirements are available for Pathologists on the American Board of Pathology website and for all other physicians on the American Board of Preventative Medicine website.
The CTSI will reimburse up to five selected clinicians up to $2,000 each to help cover the costs for a board review course and the examination. The next exam will occur in October of 2018 and will cost roughly $1,800. Non-pathologists must apply by June 30th; pathologists by June 15th.
If you are interested, please complete the online application by May 30, 2018. Applicants with academic research experience, longer durations of employment at Wake Forest, and long-term goals that align with the CTSI will be given precedence. Applicants are responsible for ensuring that they meet the requirements, applying for, and coordinating the logistics of the review course and sitting for the exam. Applicants will be reimbursed the $2,000 after successfully passing the certification exam (requests for reimbursement must be made by June 1, 2019).
