    Read what previous alumni have to say about the program:

    “In an era of rapidly changing technology and even definition of the role of the CMIO I found the CHIME CMIO Leadership Academy a terrific opportunity to learn from the experts as well as colleagues from around the country who are working on many of the same issues that I am. The faculty was very knowledgeable and supportive and the enthusiasm of fellow participants in the weekend was really energizing. I came back to work with new enthusiasm and new ideas about how to manage the challenges of the rapid rate of change in medical informatics.”Bill DeWolf, MD – Sutter Health East Bay Region

    ” I learned a ton and am still connecting things I see on a daily basis with what the faculty covered.”
    Jonathan Kaufmann, DO – The Queen’s Health System

    “…the course and the networking are invaluable. The other awesome part is that the speakers are very approachable and they are great resource beyond the event. I would highly recommend anyone in a CMIO role to attend.”
    Myhanh J. Nguyen, MD – Wentworth Douglas Hospital
