Our current fellowship offerings include the following programs:

Mamlin-McDonald Fellowship            


On February 23, 2012, the Eskenazi Health Foundation announced that an Indianapolis couple is contributed funds to support a two year research fellowship in biomedical informatics.  The anonymous gift works in tandem with funds from the Regenstrief Institute to establish the program.  The fellowship is known as the Mamlin-McDonald Biomedical Informatics Fellowship and it focuses on improving processes of care in the new Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Hospital and Eskenazi Health campus by the effective use of health information technology.

Justin Morea, DO, was awarded the Mamlin-McDonald Fellowship in July 2012 and will continue in the program through June 30, 2014. Doctor Morea conducts research on biomedical informatics at Wishard Memorial Hospital and, in his final term, at the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Hospital and its affiliated outpatient services.

Doctor Morea also practices at Wishard and Eskenazi, both in the hospital and in the community health centers, providing direct service to the most vulnerable patients in the community.  He has been named associate chief medical information officer at Wishard and is deeply engaged in day-to-day activities within the health system, employing clinical informatics to improve the quality, efficiency, and outcomes of patient care.

Clinical Informatics Fellowship


Clinical informaticians transform health care through analyzing, designing, implementing, and evaluating information and communication systems that enhance individual and population health outcomes, improve patient care, and strengthen the clinician-patient relationship. Recognizing the need for physicians who are board-certified in clinical informatics, the Regenstrief Institute is partnering with surrounding health care facilities to develop a Clinical Informatics Fellowship which incorporates each of the four core content categories, as approved by the AMIA Board of Directors in November 2008:

  • Fundamentals
  • Clinical Decision Making and Care Process Improvement
  • Health Information Systems
  • Leadership and Management of  Change

At Regenstrief, you can focuse your training in either our Scholarly Track (focused on academics and research) or our Applied Track (focused on applied clinical informatics). Both tracks offer trainees an ideal opportunity to expand your knowledge and experience through the application of information technology to the clinical world of medicine.

For open positions with start dates in 2016, applications will be accepted starting July 1, 2015.  Interviews will take place during September and October 2015.  Selection decisions can be anticipated around November 20, 2015.
