Dear Mr. Young:
I am writing to ask your assistance in informing your graduating residents about our Biomedical Informatics Research Training program. Informatics is a major theme and methodology for biomedical science as well as for health care delivery, public health, and health care education. Biomedical informatics is the convergence of biomedicine, at every level of biological scale, with a variety of technological and quantitative disciplines, including computer and information sciences, biostatistics, and cognitive science.
Applications for the 2013-2014 academic year, with a start date of July 2013, are now being accepted. The deadline for applications is October 1, 2012. The fellowship program is funded by a grant from the NIH’s National Library of Medicine and is open to US citizens and permanent residents.
Please see the attached document for additional information.
