The Biomedical Informatics and Data Science Research Training (BIRT) Program is a consortium of leading informatics laboratories at Harvard. It is supported by a grant from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health. For United States citizens and permanent residents, this postdoctoral fellowship provides stipend, tuition, and travel funds. Selected fellows are provided with many opportunities for training, research, interaction, and collaboration.  All fellows also pursue the two-year part-time Harvard Medical School Master of Biomedical Informatics degree.
