ACHI has announced the launch of the Australasian Health Informatics Fellowship Program (AHIFP). This dynamic training program will help meet the current community demands for highly trained individuals, capable of taking leadership roles in health informatics.

The AHIFP is designed to increase leadership capability in the health informatics workforce as well as create career pathways for health informatics professionals. It involves a three-year full-time health informatics doctorate, one year of paid work experience, plus supplementary learning (with a part-time equivalent). This is the first program of its kind in Australasia.

ACHI is working closely with industry, government agencies and departments, NGO’s and universities to create work placement and specialist training opportunities for health informatic research PhD students.

For more information about the Fellowship Program please visit: http://ehealth.edu.au/ahifp/

ACHI Members and Fellows will be advised when students applications formally open (towards the end of 2017).

Organisations that would like to consider and/or discuss offering a work placement for Fellowship Program students please contact the Fellowship Program Manager Leanne Bamford Barnes.
