Who is it for?

Jax Code Academy’s Informatics Bootcamp is designed to make physicians more competitive for clinical informatics fellowship positions and, ultimately, for Board Certification in Clinical Informatics.

Our Program

Physicians in all 24 subspecialties are now eligible to become Board Certified in Clinical Informatics through an exam offered by the American Board of Preventive Medicine and the American Board of Pathology. Beginning in 2018, physicians must have completed an ACGME accredited Clinical Informatics Fellowship Program in order to sit for the board exam.

A Fellowship accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) is the only pathway to achieve board certification in the new subspecialty. A physician seeking formal training in clinical informatics should understand the field and its role in healthcare.

He or she should understand how informatics differs from information technology (IT), computer science, and related areas. The potential informatician should also be aware of the kinds of work that informatics professionals perform and the types of jobs into which they are hired.

This bootcamp is geared towards physicians interested in board certification in Informatics and for applying to an informatics fellowship. Physicians with, without, or with little experience in computer programming are welcome. Our curriculum will allow you to work on real informatics projects that give you the experience, knowledge, and programming skills needed to be accepted to one of the top informatics fellowships.
