Chances are if you’re studying for the Clinical Informatics Sub-specialty Board Exam, you’ve come across the study guide from The American Board of Preventative Medicine that outlines the topics covered and the recommended references.
We got curious in our studying and made an interwebz friendly list of the resources and where you can find them online. Some of theme have free “previews” in Google Books, although some pages are omitted. Only one resource was completely free via PDF download (Kotter’s Leading Change).
We hope this will help you save some time in your studying. We also came up with a visual mind map of the study guide presented by the ABPM that we think you may find useful. You can find that here.

We would really appreciate it if you found that this list provided you value. Thanks!
