Match Process

The match process will take place through the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) match site.

If you are not already an AMIA member, you will need to access AMIA's membership site to create a profile. Follow these steps to get the student membership rate ($50): 

  • Select “Clinical Informatics Fellowship Match Applicants” for the “University/College” field 
  • Select “Fellowship” for the “Degree” field 
  • Enter “Clinical Informatics for the “Program Area” field 

Prior to the match, and ideally as soon as possible, applicants will log in to to indicate the programs to which they applied in ERAS. This will allow programs to see them as an applicant.

Applicants will need to commit their rank order by the deadline indicated on the AMIA site. If the applicant does not rank the programs to which they applied and select “Commit”, the applicant will not be entered in the match.
