The U.S. National Library of Medicine Rotation for Medical
Informatics Trainees provides students enrolled in NLM funded
Medical Informatics Training Programs an opportunity to learn
about NLM programs and about Lister Hill Center research. The
rotation includes a series of lectures and provides an
opportunity for students to work closely with established
scientists involved in Center research. The program gives
participants the opportunity to meet fellows from other NLM
funded programs and may lead to future collaboration with
Center research staff as well as with researchers from other
NLM Training Grant Programs.
Students will be paid a stipend equivalent to their regular
monthly stipend, receive reimbursement for travel to and from
the NLM, and a housing allowance of $700 per month for the 2
month NLM fellowship. The duration of students fellowships
can be extended 8 weeks at their home institutions to
accommodate for the time spent attending the NLM rotation.
