Abstract

Developing countries, such as Brazil, are increasingly suffering from a severe shortage of health informatics specialists. Training of professionals in this field is expensive, and there is a limited supply of high-quality teaching resources available. We report on five initiatives of the Brazil/USA training program in health informatics. The main goal of this program is to train professionals in establishing medical informatics programs in Brazilian universities and major healthcare facilities.
