Regenstrief Medical Informatics NLM Research Fellowship
Through its partnership with the Regenstrief Institute, the Division of General Internal Medicine offers National Library of Medicine supported fellowships in the use of computer technology to improve the quality and delivery of healthcare. Interacting closely with faculty mentors, fellows participate in a two-year (with optional third year) comprehensive training program to prepare for roles in developing, implementing and studying clinical information systems. The primary intent of this fellowship is to train fellows for careers in medical informatics research positions in academic or state and federal government programs, although graduates are also sought after by the health care and the medical systems development industry.
This medical informatics fellowship is designed for physicians, other clinicians holding doctorates, and PhDs in relevant fields, with previous computer experience who desire to become part of a community of scholars and clinicians at the forefront of medical and technological innovations. It provides an exceptional opportunity for those with strong programming skills and experience or interest in higher level languages (Java, C++ and others) who wish to have an immediate impact on patient care.
Fellows gain hands-on experience with the dynamic Regenstrief Medical Records System, a large city-wide clinical database and world class infrastructure and with federally funded medical and bioinformatics grant projects. These grant projects include the Shared Pathology Information Network, the Indianapolis Network for Patient Care, the Logical Observations Identifiers Names and Codes (LOINCÂ®) and Next Generation Internet application to telemedicine in clinical settings and nursing homes.

VA Medical Informatics Special Fellowship
The VA Informatics Special Fellowship is a two-year core training program of the VA HSR&D Center of Excellence on Implementing Evidence-Based Practice at the Indianapolis VAMC, a close partner of the Regenstrief Institute, Inc. and Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering.
The goal of the Indianapolis VA Medical Informatics fellowship training program is to prepare graduates for careers in medical informatics, with particular research skills in the areas of redesigning and transforming healthcare delivery. VA's Special Fellowship in Medical Informatics provides experience using the VA's internationally recognized medical informatics infrastructure.Exceptional mentors will train physicians who have completed their residencies as well as other post-doctoral scientists and health care professionals from a variety of disciplines, including behavioral, social, engineering, informatics or other scientists to (1) understand basic research methods; (2) understand medical informatics in great detail; (3) extract, analyze, and interpret information, both clinical and patient-centered, from electronic medical records and directly from patients; (4) develop, carry out, analyze, and report the results from a prospective research project; and (5) develop productive careers in academic medicine and/or serving the VA.
