Medical Informatics Training for Graduate and Medical Students
The Training for Graduate and Medical Students component of the Medical Informatics Training Program at the Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications provides summer or semester-long research and collaboration opportunities at NLM to graduate students enrolled in MS, PhD, and MD programs. Students participate in on-going medical informatics research under the tutelage of LHNCBC mentors. They work directly with leading medical informatics professionals, have access to on-site resources, and gain in-depth knowledge of LHNCBC programs.
This training is intended to complement the work students are doing at their home institutions.
Recipients may receive a stipend, which can vary depending on research area and experience. Appointments may be held throughout the year.
Requirements and Selection
Applicants should be enrolled in a graduate or medical degree program from an accredited academic institution in an appropriate discipline or expect to be enrolled by the time of the appointment.
Program participants will be selected based on their research accomplishments, scientific background and experience, the ability to match an applicant's abilities and background with LHNCBC research programs, letters of recommendation, awards and honors, and the availability of funds, programs, staff, and facilities.
The Medical Informatics Training Program is an equal opportunity program. Selection for positions will be based solely on merit, without discrimination for race, color, religion, sex, national origin, politics, marital status, sexual orientation, physical or mental handicap, or age.
