The Clinical Informatics Track in the UNC Psychiatry Residency Program is an elective, specialized track of study for psychiatry residents interested in efficiency, Electronic Health Record optimization, and informatics. This program is designed to help residents in the study of information technology in the context of clinical care, especially as it relates to EHR optimization.  

The Track is led by Austin Hall, MD, Medical Director for the Department’s Center for Excellence in Community Mental Health. Residents in multiple classes, including the Chief Resident of Clinical Informatics, take a leadership role as well. Interested residents apply to the track in the spring of PGY-1, and begin the track in PGY-2. One resident is accepted per post-graduate year.


This track will be new for the 2019-2020 academic year and specifics of the track’s curriculum are still being established.
