The American Board of Preventive Medicine released details of its testing program for the newly established board certification in clinical informatics.
ABPM details first clinical-informaticist test
The test consists of a one-day multiple-choice exam and will be offered for the first time Oct. 7-18, 2013. Individuals aspiring to be in the first round of those certified in the new medical subspecialty must be medical-school graduates, have been board-certified by one of the American Board of Medical Specialties' member boards, have a current medical license in the U.S. or Canada and have completed one of several "practice pathways,"—for example, three years of practice in clinical informatics or a fellowship in clinical informatics.
Additional details about the program are available on the ABPM's website.
