Informatics Grand Rounds

The University of Vermont (Center for Clinical and Translational Science - Biomedical Informatics Unit, Continuing Education, and Dana Medical Library), Fletcher Allen Health Care, and the State of Vermont are pleased to introduce a monthly Informatics Grand Rounds series that will provide a venue for learning about concepts and activities across the spectrum of informatics, from bioinformatics to clinical informatics to public health informatics. This series will feature the latest research and applications in informatics by local, regional, national, and international speakers.

Informatics has become a core element across the entire spectrum of biomedicine, from bench biology to medicine to public health. This transdisciplinary and integrative field combines biomedicine and health care with computer science, management and decision science, cognitive and social science, biostatistics, engineering, and information and communication technology. Recent national emphasis on personalized medicine, clinical and translational science, electronic health records, health care reform, public health surveillance, and global health has further highlighted the value and need for advancing informatics methods and applications. 

For any questions and/or to be added to the mailing list, please contact Liz Chen (liz.chen@uvm.edu).
