The Department of Biomedical Informatics hosts a vibrant community of postdoctoral trainees who receive 1-3 years of full-time support to conduct research mentored by DBMI's stellar faculty and tailored to individual interests. Our goal is to prepare trainees for research-intensive careers in academe, industry and government. Postdoctoral fellows who seek additional formal training to advance their careers (such as those with clinical degrees or PhDs from other fields) may also complete a research-focused master's degree in biomedical informatics. Fellows with a doctorate in biomedical informatics or a closely allied field may take selected courses if desired, but do not typically complete the master's degree. Postdoctoral fellows may be supported on the National Library of Medicine training grant or through the Veterans' Administration Postdoctoral Fellowship.
