OHSU offers predoctoral and postdoctoral research training fellowships in biomedical informatics. Support for the programs comes from the National Library of Medicine, the National Institute of Dental & Craniofacial Research, NIH Fogarty International Center, Kaiser-Permanente, and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. By providing a structured research experience with the option of coursework and/or pursuit of a degree, the program prepares fellows to undertake independent biomedical informatics research in the academic community, or to assume leadership positions in the growing number of hospital and/or commercial efforts in biomedical informatics.
