Center for Digital Health

For Residents & Fellows

The Digital Health Innovation Fellowship offers rigorous training in the development, use, and evaluation of technology for both patient care and for medical education.

This first-of-its-kind post-graduate fellowship will rigorously train academic clinicians in the development, use, and evaluation of technology for both patient care and for medical education. In this innovative fellowship, we will expose our fellows to training in both types of technology design and implementation.

Trainees will choose to focus their work on either digital medical education or digital health development and evaluation. Trainees may choose between a 1-year track or a 2-year track with a Master’s degree in Medical Education, Instructional Design, or Clinical and Translational Science.
