The OHSU Department of Medical Informatics & Clinical Epidemiology received word in December that our Biomedical Informatics Research Training Grant from the National Library of Medicine (NLM) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will be renewed for another five years from 2017-2022. This will enable us to provide financial support (stipends plus tuition) for doctoral (PhD) and postdoctoral trainees in our educational program for another five years.
Our program has been funded as an NLM training site continually since 1992. We are currently evaluating applicants to start in the 2017-2018 academic year. The application period for the 2017-2018 year has already closed, but it will open for the 2018-2019 academic year starting next summer.
The OHSU NLM Training Grant Program has produced a number of highly successful graduates, many of whom have gone to successful careers in academia, industry, and elsewhere. We hope to continue this success in the next five-year cycle of the training grant and beyond.
