Internship/Fellowship Programs - Training

The Center for Knowledge Management (CKM) trainee is expected to participate in extensive training. The trainee is surrounded by opportunities to further their interests and skills. Training typically includes:

  • Audit classes in the Vanderbilt School of Nursing and the Vanderbilt School of Medicine.
  • Attend Medical Informatics seminars, Medical Grand Rounds, and Clinical Pathology Conferences.
  • Attend CRC Research Skills Workshops.
  • SearchTalk and Filtering Teaching Conference (FTC)
    • These sessions are discussion groups for exploring new resources, establishing gold standard search strategies for selected clinical questions, exercising literature filtering skills, and recognizing quality literature.
  • Complete CKM's extensive in-house staff training program (originally created under the leadership of Dr. Nunzia Giuse).
    • Creating an institutional culture of lifelong learning for employees at all levels is part of CKM's strategic effort to increase visibility and impact throughout the medical center. (Giuse et al. 1999)
    • From CKM's in-house modules, a training program is designed to orient the trainee to the Center for Knowledge Management and build the trainee's skills.
  • Verification
    • In-house training is culminated with verification sessions. In front of peer groups and/or physicians, trainees will critically appraise and filter the biomedical literature.
