The University of Utah has a Medical Informatics Training Grant from the National Library of Medicine (NLM). The primary purpose of this grant is to train research investigators in Biomedical Informatics. For Pre-doctoral students, this grant is designed to fund students to achieve the PhD degree. For Postdoctoral (MD or PhD), the grant can fund for training to achieve either MS or PhD degrees.
The NLM training grant pays a stipend, tuition expenses, health insurance premiums and travel expenses to the annual NLM fellows meeting. The NLM funding for 15 students is limited to US citizens and permanent residents. Continuation of funding is made on a year-to-year basis and is contingent upon adequate student performance each year and the availability of funds.
