Welcome to the NLM Informatics Training Conference!

The National Library of Medicine supports research training in biomedical informatics and data science at sixteen educational institutions in the United States. These training programs offer graduate education and postdoctoral research experiences in a wide range of areas including: health care informatics, translational bioinformatics, clinical research informatics, public health informatics. In all of these areas, biomedical data science concepts and methods are part of the core curriculum. Seven programs also offer special tracks in environmental exposure informatics.

Each year an Informatics Training Conference is convened to bring NLM trainees together to showcase their work, to evaluate the full scope of current work in the field, and to meet their peers. The 2018 Informatics Training Conference will be held at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, on June 4-5, 2018.

 Trainees appointed at the Veterans Administration (VA) sponsored training programs, NLM’s intramural trainees, and informatics trainees at the NIH Clinical Center are also invited to attend and make presentations.

The 2018 annual conference is hosted by the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Vanderbilt University.
