I am drawn to Clinical Informatics as it offers innovative solutions to healthcare challenges. My focus is on reducing physician burnout, providing value-based care, and improving health outcomes. I also have an interest in healthcare policymaking, regulations, and quality reporting.

The Clinical Informatics program at RGH exposes you to real-life scenarios for which an interdisciplinary team collaborates to find solutions. The CI department is well-structured offers a culture of learning, and provides a multitude of opportunities for professional growth. The MS-HI degree offers a comprehensive curriculum and prepares you to be an excellent information.

I was drawn to Clinical Informatics, as this is the only subspecialty that offers a blend of medicine and technology. Working in the intersection of different domains opens endless possibilities for creative real-life problem-solving.

Our Program offers a great balance between academic and applied knowledge in becoming an expert in the field. The strength of the program lies in the faculty and wonderful team to work with. The fellowship collaborates with many facilities and vendors to help with not only gaining core competencies, but also support individual interests.


Kaiwen Zhu, MD


I chose the clinical informatics fellowship because I am passionate about leveraging technology and tools to enhance patient care by improving provider efficiency and effectiveness. My interests include clinical decision support, population health analytics, and EHR workflows.

What I truly appreciate about our fellowship program is the exceptional support it provides. Our program caters to individual needs and offers numerous hands-on project opportunities at RRH, and collaboration with RIT. Additionally, the program offers the unique advantage of pursuing RIT master’s degree courses in health informatics, enabling us to deepen our knowledge base simultaneously.
