   The National Library of Medicine supports 18 training centers to train
    scientific investigators and leaders in biomedical computing.
   The areas of training must be in health related domains:
         Health Care Delivery                   Focus of our grant:
         Basic Biomedical Research              “clinical informatics”

        UVA T-15 Training Grant:
“A Systems Approach to Medical Informatics”

                        Our program directly addresses the IOM/NAE
                        recommendation for building a better healthcare
                        system by creating a multidisciplinary environment
                        in which systems engineers and healthcare
                        researchers collaboratively mentor trainees in
                        medical informatics.

                ~$3M 5-year renewable grant to fund:
               Short-term minority trainees (~ 4 annually)
                     Ph.D. students* (~ 7 annually)
                      and Postdocs* (~2 annually)
                         in Medical Informatics

    *Full-time trainees earn a degree in Systems & Information Engineering with
         research and mentorship focused on healthcare information topics.
              All trainees must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.          4
Program broadened in 2009 to include all research
and training at the intersection of systems
engineering and medicine

          (Includes trainees & funding beyond NLM)
           Mission Statement
To train top-notch researchers who:
  1. are able to apply the techniques of systems and
     information engineering and medical informatics to
     address major open problems in medicine and
     healthcare delivery, and
  2. who are qualified for academic, governmental, and
     industry positions in which their technical skills and
     understanding of the biomedical domain will
     advance societal goals.

1. To recruit and retain high-quality research students
2. To increase collaborative work between engineers and
   clinicians/medical researchers at UVa in areas of biomedical informatics.
3. To disseminate research in three types of venues: a) clinical and
   biomedical, b) engineering, c) traditional medical informatics.
4. To develop and maintain a curriculum that supports careers in
   biomedical and clinical informatics from a Systems Engineering
5. To mentor students in the art of conducting academic research
6. To provide trainees with external experiences to meet outside
   researchers and industry contacts and to enable them to make an
   impression on their research community.
7. To transfer technologies, processes, and research artifacts to the
   market, to medical practices, and/or to other researchers
8. To place trainees in academic and research positions around the
   country                                                            7

• Program maturing:
  – Publications
  – Graduations
  – Distributed management structure across students
    and faculty
  – Case Study Seminar
  – Development of Metrics
  – New faculty, students, projects and funding

             Goals for Year 4
• Continue to grow
