The Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center (HSLIC) established its biomedical informatics program as part of a National Library of Medicine Integrated Advanced Information Management Systems (IAIMS) grant in the late 1990's.


The unrestricted transformation of biomedical information into health knowledge.


Our interdisciplinary team advances the science of biomedical informatics by finding innovative ways to eliminate information barriers to health through research, training, scholarship and service.

What is Biomedical Informatics?

Biomedical Informatics Fellowships

Research Fellowship

HSLIC offers a three-year research fellowship for those at the post-doctoral level (with MD, PharmD or PhD degrees) who have an interest in becoming biomedical informatics investigators and/or academicians. Formal training in information technology is not required to be eligible for the fellowship. The fellowship program is designed to train individuals for biomedical informatics careers in academic research and the health care industry. In addition to extensive exposure to a wide spectrum of biomedical informatics topics, the curriculum also provides Fellows with the health services research skills necessary to become independently funded academic investigators.

Clinical Fellowship

This fellowship is an ACGME accredited, two year, full time, training program for physicians only. Upon completion, students will be board-eligible to sit for the clinical informatics board certification exam. The fellowship is an applied fellowship, meaning the goal is to train clinicians in the best methods to deploy and maintain health information technologies (including electronic health records). Although publications and other scholarly activities will be encouraged and supported, this fellowship does not train its students in research skills as the HSLIC Biomedical Informatics Fellowship does.
