Abstract

Competence in clinical informatics is an essential requirement for 21st century healthcare professionals, including physicians. As such, it must be taught from the beginning of professional education. We describe the conceptualization and implementation of a curriculum in clinical informatics in a US medical school. We started by developing the required competencies and then developed a curriculum based on them. As adding new content to medical school curricula is fraught with challenges, we describe our major obstacles and lessons learned.
