Are you a library professional interested in learning more about the research process? Do you have a brilliant idea or research topic that you want to pursue but don't know where to start and need support to carry it through?  The Research Training Institute (RTI) is a unique, intensive and collaborative program that takes you through a process of learning research design and completing a health information research project with the support of peers and research experts. Librarians of all levels of professional experience who provide health services, collections, and support and are passionate about increasing their research competencies to contribute to health and library improvements, are encouraged to apply to the RTI program. The Institute is a week-long, hands-on, residential workshop held in Chicago, July 13–17, 2020, with follow-up activities, support, mentoring, and membership in an ongoing research community, and an opportunity to present findings at the MLA national conference.

Applications are now being accepted through January 17, 2020 for the 2020 cohort of RTI research fellows. Admission is competitive. Accepted applicants will be notified in March 2020. See the RTI website for eligibility requirements and selection criteria. The institute also offers a growing number of scholarship opportunities.
