The National Library of Medicine (NLM) supports research trainees in biomedical informatics at 14 educational institutions throughout the United States. These programs offer graduate education and postdoctoral research experiences in a wide range of areas including: health care informatics, translational bioinformatics, clinical research informatics, and public health informatics. Several programs also offer a track in dentalinformatics.
Each year an informatics training conference is convened to bring NLM trainees together to showcase their work, to evaluate the full scope of current work in the field, and to meet their peers. The 2016 Informatics Training Conference will be held at The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, June 27 – 28, 2016.
All trainees on full-time NLM appointments at university-based programs as of the date of the conference are expected to attend this meeting. Trainees appointed at the Lister Hill Center Informatics Training Program, the NIH Clinical Center Informatics Program and the Veterans Administration sponsored training programs are also invited to attend and make presentations.
