Training and Curriculum 

As the only multidisciplinary program of its kind in the U.S., the MMCI program leverages Duke University’s world-renowned track record in medicine, business, and health informatics. As a result, MMCi students have access to the finest thought leaders, experiential learning, and resources across health care, IT, and business. Please direct questions about the MMCi program to Randy Sears, MMCi Operations Director (r.sears@duke.edu).

Over the course of the fellowship, fellows will be engaged in rotations that embed them within a variety of teams at Duke so that they can apply informatics skills learned in the didactic portion towards real life challenges in a complex environment typical of a large academic health care delivery system. Fellows will also engage in longitudinal informatics experiences and be expected to own ‘soup-to-nuts’ the design, implementation, and evaluation of health information technology intervention. Informatics Fellows will also be expected to disseminate the outcome of their projects through academic conferences and journals.

As Program Director, Eric Poon, MD MPH (eric.poon@dm.duke.edu) will be responsible for the program. Teaching faculty are drawn from Duke faculty affiliated with the Duke Center for Health Informatics, Duke Health Technology Solutions, Duke’s Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics, and Duke’s Fuqua School of Business.

Clinical Fellows are expected to be clinically active in their own clinical specialty up to 20% during their Fellowship.
