trainees) in:
 
o   Medical Computer Science at MIT (under the direction of Prof. Peter
    Szolovits), emphasizing medical knowledge representation, model
        building, and clinical decision making
 
o   Health Decision Science at Harvard School of Public Health (under
    the direction of Prof. Milton Weinstein), emphasizing decision
    analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis, and outcome modeling
 
Research fellowship training (postdoctoral only):
 
o   Decision Systems Group, Brigham and Women's Hospital (under the
    direction of Robert A. Greenes, M.D., Ph.D.), emphasizing clinical
    decision making, medical educational strategies, clinical
    guidelines, clinical record keeping, medical knowledge
    representation and query (UMLS), radiologic image management, and
    object-oriented software architectures for network-based application
    development
 
o   Laboratory of Computer Science, Massachusetts General Hospital
    (under the direction of G. Octo Barnett, M.D.), emphasizing clinical
    decision making, medical student education, student/physician
    workstation design, problem-based knowledge access, ambulatory
    computer-based medical record systems, and implementation/evaluation
    of guidelines
 
o   Division of Clinical Decision Making, NEMC (under the direction of
    Stephan G. Pauker, M.D.), emphasizing clinical decision making,
    knowledge representation, and guidelines and outcome evaluation
 
o   Other special opportunities are also available to qualified
    candidates in radiology informatics.
 
Predoctoral fellowship applicants must concurrently apply for admission
to the MIT or Harvard degree program.   Postdoctoral applicants will
usually have at least one year and preferably three years of residency
training prior to beginning of fellowship.
 
The combined training program offers a wide range of opportunities for
education, research, and collegial interaction among the training sites.
A large variety of course offerings at Harvard, MIT, and Tufts, many
seminars, journal clubs, and other opportuities for exchange of
information provide all trainees with opportunities to learn about the
variety of work occurring at the various laboratories and in the
affiliated institutions, as well as in the larger field of medical
informatics.   A number of associated faculty participate in the
program through the research activities of each of the training sites.
In addition to the research programs of the participating laboratories,
we encourage the fellows to develop projects that may involve unique
collaborative relationships.
 
NLM-supported fellowships are available to U.S. permanent residents
only.  For more information, contact the training program office:
