Continuing Medical Education (CME)
Informatics training has risen to the level that the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is sponsoring the American Medical Informatics Association to establish the foundation for a system that will certify competency of physicians as a subspecialty of applied clinical informatics. (http://www.amia.org/inside/releases/2007/rwjf2007grantannouncement.pdf). In addition, the public health community has specified the need for informatics competencies for public health practitioners (http://www.nwcphp.org/docs/phi/comps/phi_print.pdf) and for public health informaticians. This RSC is designed within the parameters of such competencies.
