ACHI offers training fellowship in health informatics
The Australasian College of Health Informatics (ACHI) is offering a four-year, full-time fellowship, including a year of paid work placements, leading to a PhD qualification in health informatics.
Established this year, the Australasian Health Informatics Fellowship Program (AHIFP) is designed to prepare people for roles in the health informatics workforce and to address demand for experienced health informaticians from various disciplines, including technical, health service management and clinical backgrounds.
ACHI plans to work with host organisations to identify specialised health informatics projects for candidates and to design suitable work placement opportunities. Host organisations include government agencies and departments, NGOs, hospitals and healthcare organisations and software companies in Australia and New Zealand.
It is backed by Macquarie University and the newly established NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence in Digital Health.
It will involve a health informatics research doctoral program at an Australasian university and two paid health informatics six-month work placements. There are also part-time options.
Applications are now open.
