About

Robert A. Jenders, MD, MS, FACP, FACMI joined the faculty of Charles Drew University (CDU) as Professor of Medicine and Co-Director of its Center for Biomedical Informatics as well as rejoined the faculty of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in September, 2012. His research broadly addresses the domain of clinical decision support, with a focus on knowledge representation and health information technology standards in the context of electronic health record systems. A general internist and fellow of the American College of Physicians and the American College of Medical Informatics, he also provides clinical care and teaches in the graduate medical education program at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.

A native of Milwaukee, Dr. Jenders received a BS degree in computer science from Marquette University and the MD degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he also completed internship and residency in medicine. He went on to serve as clinical and research fellow in medicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital, completing a National Library of Medicine fellowship in medical informatics at the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Science and Technology. He concurrently completed the MS degree in computer science at Northeastern University. Upon completion of training, Dr. Jenders served as Assistant Professor in the Departments of Medicine and Biomedical Informatics at Columbia University. He went on to serve as Associate Professor and Professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles while he was a member of the faculty of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Subsequently he served as a staff scientist at the National Library of Medicine, US National Institutes of Health and as attending staff physician at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC before returning to Los Angeles to assume positions at CDU and UCLA.
