Imaging informatics relates to the use of information technology in imaging workflows. The University of Maryland Imaging Informatics Fellowship is offered in combination with selected clinical fellowship programs, and provides radiologists with a broad foundation in the field.

Fellows learn about technology standards, clinical operations, and research from the perspective of imaging informatics. The program is based on a combination of didactic sessions, small group discussions and research projects, with the goal of providing a challenging, interactive, collegial environment for those who wish to innovate in radiology and health care.

Fellows divide their time between informatics and their chosen clinical subspecialty, with a certain amount of time dedicated to informatics each week. Fellows are expected to engage in research under the guidance of the program mentors and department staff, leading to conference presentations and peer-reviewed manuscript publications.

An interest or background in computer programming is not required, but is advantageous. Past fellows have gone on to leadership roles in academics, private practice, and industry.
