The goal of this program is to train and mature postdoctoral fellows in medical informatics research and to produce future leaders for the field. The Postdoctoral Research Program provides recent M.D. or
Ph.D. recipients an opportunity to participate in collaborative
research in a variety of areas of biomedical informatics.
Participants interact with leading informatics researchers,
have access to on-site resources and facilities, become
familiar with the leading research, gain a comprehensive
understanding of the Centers programs, and make significant
professional contributions to their fields.
Appointments are for one year and are renewable for an
additional year upon recommendation of the Center and

varies depending on degree, research area and experience.
