New Clinical Informatics Curriculum Prepares Future Pathologists
Date:7/10/2014

s in clinical informatics is 'a must' to build the skills required now and in the future," said APC President-Elect Donald S. Karcher, MD, one of the leaders overseeing the development of PIER and chairman of the Department of Pathology at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. "We designed PIER with the residency programs in mind and have created a flexible curriculum, which can be integrated throughout residency training."

Theory and Practice
PIER is designed for all pathology residents—those specializing in anatomic or clinical pathology or both. The curriculum exposes residents to information technology in pathology as they participate in their anatomic and/or clinical pathology rotations and residency activities related to management; quality assurance and control; and regulatory and accreditation issues; as well as the daily flow of information into and out of the laboratory and the proper utilization of that information. Each topic includes key outcomes mapped to pathology informatics ACGME milestone levels.

"PIER serves as a research-based instructional resource," said Liron Pantanowitz, MD, API immediate past president, co-leader of the working group developing PIER, and director of the Pathology Informatics Fellowship Program and associate director of the Pathology Informatics Division at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania. "We plan to update PIER as technology advances to ensure residents receive the most current knowledge in this field."

The three organizations designed PIER to help residency programs prepare their residents for the future of the specialty.

"Information management will continue to play a crucial role in pathology," said
