AMIA's Clinical Informatics Board Review Course (CIBRC) provides American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) board-certified physicians with resources to assist in becoming certified in the subspecialty of clinical informatics.

The course offerings are a resource for all practicing clinical informaticians seeking to strengthen their knowledge of the field.


Don't Wait to Get Certified

Practice pathway eligibility is available through 2022. In 2023 clinical informatics board certification will be available only after completion of an ACGME-accredited two-year fellowship.

There are more than 1800 board-certified clinical informaticians in the U.S. This is far short of the projected need for 6000 physicians trained to support the implementation of EHRs and the technology-powered healthcare transformation (Safran C. 2009).  Board-certified clinical informaticians are needed for the 5,000 hospitals and 20,000 clinics in the U.S.

The increasing need for the unique skill set of clinical informaticians provides physicians with board certification a competitive advantage.

The American Board of Preventative (ABPM) released an update to Clinical Informatics Subspecialty examination content areas in April 2021.  AMIA is now in the process of updating the CIBRC course to align with the CIS examination blueprint. The updated course will incorporate material from the 2019 Delineation of Practice not in the current CIBRC curriculum which is based on the 2009 Core Content.  AMIA’s faculty are working on their course updates to be ready for the September 10-12, 2021, live course to be held in Bethesda, Maryland. The online course update will take place at approximately the same time.
