S Koby Taswell et al, 2019, Brain Health Alliance Virtual Institute: Teaching Students Medical Informatics via Collaborative Research Projects to be presented June 2019 at the AMIA 2019 Informatics Educators Forum in St Louis, Missouri.
During program years 2014–2018, a total of 45 high school, college and graduate students have participated in the Brain Health Alliance Virtual Institute (BHAVI), a project-based learning and research training program. BHAVI students have published 14 conference papers in clinical and translational research informatics and data sciences. BHAVI uses frequent videoconferencing between students and mentors as its primary collaboration tool, and overcomes obstacles to on-line education with support from on-site advisors.
If you are a student interested in applying for BHAVI 2019, information is now available at 2019 BHAVI programs.
All of us at Brain Health Alliance wish to thank our financial contributors for their donations, without whom our education and research work would not be possible.
