Opportunities for New Researchers
MIRTL regularly involves medical students, residents, and other trainees, fellows (both informatics fellows and others), and graduate research assistants in its activities. Trainee researchers are considered partners in the research enterprise and are encouraged to contribute original ideas and pursue lines of research consistent with project foci. These researchers are routinely included as authors on MIRTL publications and are frequently sponsored to present the results of their research at national professional meetings. The University of Maryland Baltimore administrative structure is experienced in managing graduate research assistantships. Graduate research assistants are remunerated in compliance with University of Maryland/National Institutes of Health guidelines, with tuition remission and other benefits scaled to the level of participation and scheduled work hours.

Opportunities for Collaboration
MIRTL members welcome the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues at Maryland or other universities and have the expertise and available technologies to research and share imaging technologies across institutional, vendor, and geographic boundaries. We currently collaborate with a mix of academic, industry, private practice, and federal groups and are always open to discussions of new partnerships that promise to expand the scope and relevance of medical imaging.
One of our ongoing efforts at collaboration is selective “embedding” of informatics staff from other departments in our state-of-the-art imaging informatics lab. This allows us to learn about the specific IT, knowledge management, and workflow challenges in the areas that our department serves on a daily basis, and often leads to pursuit of cooperative research across a variety of medical disciplines.
