The National Library of Medicine (NLM) believes that clinical care,
biomedical research and education, and public health administration can
be improved by the inclusion of in-context information specialists
(informationists) into work and decision settings. Informationists are
information specialists who have received graduate training and
practical experience that provides them with disciplinary background
both in medical or biological sciences and in information
sciences/informatics. Their cross training provides informationists
with a unique perspective on the acquisition, synthesis and application
of information to problem solving and program development in their
chosen area.

The NLM Senior Fellowship for Informationist Training provides support
for experienced librarians, scientists, health professionals and others
who wish to become in-context information specialists. Priority areas
for informationist training are:
o clinical informationist to work in health care delivery and
clinical research
o research informationist to work in biomedical research, research
administration, or scientific curation
o public health informationist to work in public health at the
national, regional or local level
o consumer health informationist to work with the general public on
health information issues

These fellowships are intended for experienced health sciences
librarians, scientists, health professionals and others who wish to
broaden their existing scientific background by acquiring the
additional disciplinary knowledge to function as an informationist. The
senior fellowship awards will enable professionally qualified
individuals with at least ten years of post-graduate experience to take
time from their regular professional responsibilities for the purpose
of receiving specialized training. This award can be used in
conjunction with a sabbatical experience.

The candidates for this award will have an appropriate graduate degree
for professional practice in their field, such as a research or health-
professional doctorate for researchers and clinicians. The requirement
for a doctoral degree need not apply to candidates in the following
professional fields: engineering, computer science, library and
information sciences, nursing. However, graduate preparation for
professional practice is required in those fields.
