It's good advice to take a class in medical librarianship, however not all 
library schools offer them and if you've already graduated it may not be 
an option.  However, you can still get formal training by taking advantage 
of classes offered throughout the country by the National Training Center 
and Clearinghouse <http://nnlm.gov/mar/online/>. These classes give formal 
CE credit and typically cost nothing more than the cost of your 
transportation and lunch.  Smaller organizations such as local, state and 
regional medical library associations also often sponsor low-cost or 
sometimes no-cost continuing education classes.

You can take CE classes at the national conference as well, but it is 
typically quite expensive.

Also, check with the regional medical library nearest to where you live 
for educational opportunities that are available:  http://nnlm.gov/
