The Clinical and Translational Science Institute (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% FTE in 3 of the last 5 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 Preventive Medicine website. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for interested clinicians to enhance their informatics knowledge, to enhance the credibility of clinical informatics-related work at Wake Forest, and to connect faculty to the informatics community.
The CTSI will reimburse up to five selected clinicians up to $2,000 to help cover the costs for a board review course and the examination.
Applicants will be reimbursed after successful passing of the examination. The next examination will occur in October or November of 2019. Last year’s exam cost $1,950 through the American Board of Preventive Medicine with registration beginning in March and ending in July. The American Medical Informatics Association offers both a live and online Clinical Informatics Board Review Course. The online board review course is available for $1,900 for non-members.
If you are interested, please complete the online application by March 15, 2019.
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 insuring that they meet the requirements, applying for, and coordinating the logistics of the review course and sitting for the examination. Applicants will be reimbursed after successfully passing the certification exam. (Requests for reimbursement must be made by June 1, 2020).
