National Library of Medicine (NLM) Funded Pre-doctoral Training Positions

The Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Utah is the recipient of a National Library of Medicine (NLM) Training Grant. The grant funds research training of 15 students in biomedical informatics.

Each NLM informatics research training program makes special efforts to recruit individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and those from economically, socially, culturally or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds, into careers in biomedical informatics. The positions are for US citizens and permanent residents.

National Library of Medicine (NLM) Curriculum Grant

In 2010, the Department received an NLM Supplementary Curriculum grant. Objectives of the training grant administrative supplement were to: develop six courses currently being offered by the department into a web-based distance education format, create two new short summer courses, and develop a Sandbox as a resource for all of the courses. The Sandbox would include access to applications relevant to informatics practice or research. The intent of the Sandbox was to have a place where students could practice what they were being taught. Most courses can be taken as either Continuing Education (non-credit) or for Academic Credit:
