Program Overview

The Biomedical Informatics Training Program at the Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications provides biomedical 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 biomedical 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.

Each year approximately 50 interns and fellows, coming from across the US and from several foreign countries, participate in our program.

LHNCBC, the NIH Clinical Center, NIH research labs and NIDCR are located on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland.
