NLM Georgia Biomedical Informatics Course

Join us this Thursday as we discuss the most recent NLM Georgia Biomedical Informatics Course and the value of such learning opportunities for medical librarians and other informaticians. For many years, this course was held at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, but as of last fall it has a new home in the north Georgia mountains and new hosts from the Greenblatt Library at Georgia Regents University. The first Georgia course took place last September with fourteen medical librarians in attendance along with several healthcare providers, researchers, and health systems administrators.
This course is taught by nationally renowned experts in biomedical informatics, who also happen to be very friendly and approachable! Topics included controlled vocabularies, mathematical modeling, electronic health records, meaningful use, disaster information, and information visualization, to name just a few. There were also gummy bears, rocking chairs, zombies, golf carts, big turtles, and constellations. You can read more about the course here, and you may also want to read what some librarians thought of a previous course.
Alison Aldrich (@aldricham) participated in the fall course and will be your host this week, and hopefully a few of her classmates will join in as well. If you are reading this and have questions in advance, please leave them in the comments so we can better prepare for Thursday night. See you then!
UPDATE: Here is a summary presentation I put together for my OSU colleagues a few weeks ago. Keep in mind this is just a sampling of content. Boiling down a week of intensive training into a 45 minute overview was a challenge, so we'll see how 60 minutes, 140 characters at a time goes ;)
