New One Year Fellowship
This is a wonderful and unusual opportunity for librarians interested in expanding their experience in disaster preparedness, emergency medicine and out-of-hospital care. You must be a Masters-trained information science or informatics professional to apply for this new one year fellowship. Sponsored by the Sewell Memorial fund, the application deadline is August 3.
A brief description of the fellowship from their website: “The purpose of the Learning Partnerships is to place experienced librarians and information professionals within leading health care or research organizations in order for both partners to gain a better understanding of how best information sciences can be effectively applied in each environment. The Fund believes that this experience will facilitate a bridging of cultures resulting in a more creative and effective application of information science in the health care arena. “
The MESH Coalition has worked with NLM on disaster-related endeavors.
