ALBUQUERQUE, NM - Trevor Rohm, M.D., has accepted a Fellowship with the University of New Mexico's Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center (HSLIC) in its Biomedical Informatics Training Program.
In addition to a curriculum in informatics, Rohm will complete a mentored research project using a natural language-processing program to determine diagnoses and de-identify pathology text reports from UNM’s Human Tissue Repository.
Rohm completed his residency in July with UNM’s Department of Family and Community Medicine, which is partnering with HSLIC to provide the fellowship opportunity. His interests include Clinical Informatics, Sports Medicine, Rehabilitation Medicine and Men’s Health.
"We are very happy to have the opportunity to partner with Family and Community Medicine to fund this fellowship, which will be a big win for all parties concerned - Dr. Rohm, HSLIC, Family Medicine, and UNM." says Dr. Holly Buchanan, HSLIC Director.
UNM HSLIC’s mission is to improve and enhance human health through support, innovation, and leadership in the organization, delivery and use of quality information.
