FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ALBUQUERQUE , NM Randall Stewart, M.D., was recently awarded a three-year Individual Biomedical Informatics Fellowship from the National Library of Medicine (NLM), a division of the National Institutes of Health, to pursue research and training in the field of medical informatics.

Stewart, assistant professor with HSLIC, currently is researching the effects of electronic documentation on the psychiatric patient population, but also is interested in application development, electronic health record implementation, and medical coding standards.

"The National Library of Medicine awards these individual fellowship grants to only seven or eight new fellows each year, so it is quite an honor," remarked Philip Kroth, M.D., assistant professor and assistant director for Health Sciences Informatics Program Development. "This is the first in what is hoped to be a long line of research fellows in the new medical informatics training program at the HSLIC."

UNM's Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center improves and enhances human health through support, innovation, and leadership in the organization, delivery and use of quality information. We create an environment that fosters the development and sharing of knowledge for the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center and its partners.
