Trainees are PhD students, postdoctoral fellows, and clinical informatics fellows enrolled in the biomedical informatics graduate program. Trainees come from a variety of backgrounds including librarianship, medicine, nursing, veterinary medicine, computer science, and other disciplines. In the admissions process, demonstration of self-motivation and ability to complete projects is of paramount importance. The program also values intellectual diversity, aiming to achieve a complementary mix of students with varied backgrounds. Here are our 2017-2018 Fellows.
