NLM Georgia Biomedical Informatics Course
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has awarded Robert B. Greenblatt, M.D. Library, Georgia Regents University a multi-year, $1.7 million contract to host the NLM Georgia Biomedical Informatics Course.
The course, previously held at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts,
offers participants a week-long immersive experience in biomedical informatics and
provides continuing education to health care professionals interested in the application
of computer technologies to medicine. The Georgia course will be held at Brasstown Valley.
Biomedical administrators, faculty and others who can become change agents for their institutions are strongly encouraged to apply. All costs for the course including travel, housing, and per diem are supported by NLM. The application is open to US citizens and US permanent residents.
The course will provide attendees a diverse set of skills and experiences incorporating concepts, theories and building blocks of biomedical informatics; ability to use informatics for solving current health care challenges; application and policies related to computer technologies and information science; hands-on experience during evening workshops; and networking with nationally known bioinformatics educators and thought leaders.
This project has been funded in whole or in part with Federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. HHSN276201400006.
