Medical Informatics Training Program
The Medical Informatics Training Program at the Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications provides medical informatics and clinical informatics training and research opportunities for individuals at various stages in their careers. The program has for more than 20 years contributed to medical and clinical informatics research and trained future informatics research leaders.
Each participant spends between a few months and several years working on LHNCBC research projects under the guidance of LHNCBC research staff preceptors. The FAQs include information about the lecture series that is part of this program. Participants also make presentations, write manuscripts, attend and present at professional conferences, and may publish in professional journals.
In calendar year 2012, 47 interns and fellows came from 15 states and six foreign countries.
