Dr. Jin is one of 8 fellows selected nationally, and she is one of 3 fellows to be selected for funding through the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. The funding includes a $35,000 stipend that can used towards tuition, project expenses, and salary, as well as travel expenses to the Diagnostic Error in Medicine Conference.
This fellowship will complement her OHSU Clinical Informatics fellowship. Her didactic and research project will focus on reducing diagnostic error. Dr. Jin’s particular research project will focus on the use of analytics and machine learning to identify opportunities to diagnose cardiovascular disease in patients who present with symptoms that are “atypical” – applying informatics knowledge and skills toward a real-world clinical problem.
Dr. Jin will also make connections with the other SIDM fellows and also with research faculty from other institutions, which will help broaden her network.
