Description: The NLM Georgia Biomedical Informatics Course is an intensive, week-long continuing education course. From the course description: “Biomedical administrators, faculty and others who can become change agents for their institutions are strongly encouraged to apply. All costs for the course including travel, housing, and per diem are supported by NLM. The course [provides] attendees a diverse set of skills and experiences incorporating concepts, theories and building blocks of biomedical informatics; ability to use informatics for solving current health care challenges; application and policies related to computer technologies and information science; hands-on experience during evening workshops; and networking with nationally known bioinformatics educators and thought leaders.” In this session, recent attendees will discuss the benefits of attending and key “takeaways.” Project Kathy Davies will discuss the application process and format of the course. This session comes at a perfect time for potential applicants, as applications for the 2017 courses open in October.
