The growing role of information technology within health care delivery has created the need to deepen the pool of informaticians who can help organizations maximize the effectiveness of their investment in information technology and in so doing maximize the impact on safety, quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of care.

The UCLA Health Resident Informaticist Program provides clinicians with a general understanding of Health IT and Clinical Informatics topics.  The program embraces a practical, hands-on approach in order to attain tangible results. Monthly meetings cover a wide variety of topics and help provide a deeper understanding of how Health IT and Clinical Informatics can be leveraged to effectively utilize the EHR. Additionally, resident informaticists will complete an independent program practicum.
