Biography

William Hersh, MD, FACMI, FACP is Professor and Chair of the Department of Medical Informatics & Clinical Epidemiology in the School of Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) in Portland, Oregon, USA. Dr. Hersh is a leader and innovator in biomedical informatics both in education and research.

In education, he developed and serves as Director of all of OHSU’s graduate biomedical informatics education programs, including the Master of Science, the Master of Biomedical Informatics, the Graduate Certificate, and the Doctor of Philosophy. Dr. Hersh also spearheaded OHSU’s efforts in distance learning for biomedical informatics, which are available up to the master’s degree level. He also conceptualized and implemented the first offering of the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) 10x10 (“ten by ten”) program, which aims to educate 10,000 health care professionals and others in biomedical informatics.

Dr. Hersh also serves as Director of OHSU's Fellowship in Biomedical Informatics, mainly funded by a training grant from the National Library of Medicine, which was recently renewed through 2017. He also directs an Informatics Training for Global Health grant from the National Institutes of Health Fogarty International Center in collaboration with Hospital Italiano of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Dr. Hersh is also involved in other global efforts to expand informatics capacity through education in Singapore and elsewhere.

Dr. Hersh has won numerous awards for his educational innovations. These include the OHSU Faculty Senate Distinguished Faculty Award for outstanding teaching in 2007, the 2008 AMIA Donald A.B. Lindberg Award for Innovation in Informatics, and being named among the Modern Healthcare Top 25 Clinical Informaticists in 2010, 2011, and 2012.

Dr. Hersh has also made many contributions in research. His most recent work has focused on the quantity and characteristics of the workforce needed to implement health information technology, especially in clinical settings. Dr. Hersh is also active in clinical and translational research informatics. He serves as Director of the Biomedical Informatics Program of the Oregon Clinical & Translational Research Institute (OCTRI) and was Chair of the National Informatics Steering Committee of the Clinical & Translational Science Award (CTSA) program of the National Institutes of Health from 2006-2008. His research originally focused in the area of information retrieval, where he has authored over 100 scientific papers as well as the book, Information Retrieval: A Health and Biomedical Perspective (Springer, 2009), now in its third edition and which has an associated Web site. He has also been involved in the leadership of various aspects of the Text Retrieval Conference (TREC) sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Dr. Hersh also maintains the Informatics Professor blog.

Dr. Hersh obtained his B.S. in Biology from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana in 1980 and his M.D. from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1984. After finishing a residency in Internal Medicine at University of Illinois Hospital in Chicago in 1987, he completed a Fellowship in Medical Informatics at Harvard University in 1990.
Dr. Hersh has been at OHSU since 1990.

Presence

Our program and I are on social media:
I was also featured in an executive profile in the Portland Business Journal. This publication has featured myself and/or our program a number of times.

My
fitness routine was featured in our local newspaper, the Oregonian, in 2004 and is for the most part still up to date (as of 2013)!
