We derived a novel, low-cost, 2-year applied clinical informatics educational and mentorship pathway within an internal medicine residency, the Clinical Scholars in Informatics (CSI) pathway. The CSI can be broadly applied to most internal medicine programs across the US. Furthermore, the CSI yields bid-directional net benefits for the resident physicians (learning through implementation of an applied informatics project end-to-end) and for the health system (application and evaluation of a locally relevant project with robust evaluation).

Describe the new knowledge and additional skills the participant will gain after attending your presentation.: The attendee will be able to: (1) Derive an action plan for development of a resident driven applied informatics pathway at their home institution. (ACGME Systems-Based Practice); (2) Identify opportunities to develop EHR optimization pathways to improve care and efficiency. (ACGME Practice-Based Learning and Improvement)
