Stud Health Technol Inform. 2006;122:800.


Considering the continued demand for a large number of trained professionals we decided to offer a certificate program in health informatics. The objective is to prepare professionals to conduct research and implement the curriculum content in their original institutions. We selected 14 candidates from several national institutes. The disciplines are taught by Brazilian and US faculty. Researches conducted by the certificate students were relevant to Brazil's health needs. The goal is to promote better health informatics education, regardless of geographic distribution of students.
