Are you interested in applying computer technologies to medicine and health care? Are you ready to be an agent of change in your institution in the area of biomedical informatics? Then the National Library of Medicine has a continuing education course just for you!
The NLM Georgia Biomedical Informatics Course is a week long class on the basic concepts and applications for biomedical informatics. You will receive an overview of controlled terminology, standards, mathematical modeling, bioinformatics, natural language processing, clinical information systems architectures, and methods for assessing and influencing institutional adoption of information technology. You will also learn about ways to use this technology to solve current problems in patient-centered care, public health, disaster response, and more! Evening workshops will provide hands-on projects to put the lessons learned into practice.
This program is geared towards medical educators, medical librarians, medical administrators, clinical practitioners, and faculty.
