The CIBRC Bundle is a Premium Package offering all of AMIA’s clinical informatics board review tools at a discount. Participants have the opportunity to engage in self-paced learning using CIBRC Online Plus, with its 23 modules of content directly related to the Core Content along with the 200-question simulated board exam. Learners also engage in the 3-day experience of the live meeting (September 10 - 12, 2021), where they interact with CIBRC’s renowned faculty and with colleagues.

Most of our past CIBRC attendees have chosen the CIBRC Bundle for their exam preparation approach. AMIA offers the popular CIBRC bundle since the blended learning experience has generally been shown to be an effective approach to a deep and long-lasting learning experience in CME.

The Clinical Informatics Board Review Course offerings are designed to provide:

  • An overview of the content on which the examination for certification in the subspecialty of Clinical Informatics is based.
  • Sample questions for each of the major topic areas
  • References for additional study
  • Guidance on how to prepare an application to sit for the exam
  • Test-taking tips/what to expect on the exam
  • 25 hours or more of lecture-based content
  • Opportunities to self-assess to identify areas of strength and weakness

Learning Objectives

Individuals who complete the Clinical Informatics Board Review Course in any of its formats should be able to demonstrate knowledge of current clinical informatics practice, as evidenced by their ability to:

  • Describe the role of data across the health care system, the laws governing use of data, and technical approaches to ensuring quality and protection of data
  • Identify the range of clinical decision support tools; explain how to determine which application is appropriate for specific situations; describe how to develop and implement clinical decision support tools.
  • Describe the processes of developing or selecting a clinical information system, preparing and supporting clinicians for system implementation, and evaluating system effectiveness.
