Kimberly Shoenbill, MD, PhD, has been named the new director of the UNC Clinical Informatics Fellowship.
Kimberly Shoenbill, MD, PhD, was named the new UNC Clinical Informatics Fellowship director on March 15, 2023. The UNC Clinical Informatics Fellowship was accredited in 2019 with its inaugural class in July 2020.
“We are committed to training physician clinical informatician leaders who can bridge the gap between clinical information, data analysis, and technology support to improve health care delivery, research, and quality studies,” Shoenbill said. “The program is residency agnostic, accepting resident-trained MDs and DOs from all fields without a specialty-specific informatics fellowship.”
Shoenbill is dually board-certified in family medicine and clinical informatics. She completed her MD at the University of Wisconsin (UW) Madison School of Medicine and Public Health, her family medicine training at the Medical College of Wisconsin, her PhD in clinical investigation with an emphasis in biomedical informatics at UW Madison, and her clinical informatics fellowship through the National Library of Medicine program at UW Madison’s Computation and Informatics in Biology and Medicine Program.
Shoenbill is an assistant professor in the Department of Family Medicine and has served as associate director of UNC’s Clinical Informatics Fellowship Program since 2021. She also serves as Director of the UNC Tobacco Treatment and Weight Management programs.
“I am very excited to become the Clinical Informatics Fellowship Program Director to further support fellows, faculty, associated learners, and the health care system in our shared goal of improved patient satisfaction, clinical outcomes, care value, and provider well-being,” Shoenbill said.
