The Harvard Clinical Informatics Lecture Series (HCILS) provides a forum for clinicians and researchers at HMS and beyond to learn the field of clinical informatics. The series addresses core topics in clinical informatics as outlined by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education as well as cutting edge research being done nationally.

This series is designed to change the way clinicians approach clinical informatics problems and provide them with tools to create more successful intervention.

The seminar intends to provide attendees with the tools to:

  • Apply Clinical Informatics principles to solve clinical and operational challenges
  • Understand proven informatics tools and techniques
  • Critically review informatics evidence

Sessions are held virtually (via Zoom) on Tuesdays 12–1pm. Check the DBMI Calendar for upcoming sessions and descriptions.
