Free NLM Webinar: Introduction to the Unified Medical Language System

Posted by on February 26th, 2019 Posted in: Continuing Education


Date/Time: Thursday, March 7, 2019 at 2 PM EST

Description: The Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) is a set of files and software available from the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) that brings together many biomedical vocabularies and standards for drugs, disorders, procedures, lab tests, medical devices, organisms, anatomy, genes, and more. Come learn how researchers and organizations can use the rich collection of terminology data in the UMLS to enhance interoperability and discoverability in research and clinical applications.

Join David Anderson from NLM on Thursday, March 7, 2019, at 2 p.m. EST for a brief overview of how researchers and organizations can use the rich collection of terminology data in the UMLS to enhance interoperability and discoverability in research and clinical applications.

This is our latest event in the webinar series, Clinical Information, Librarians and the NLM: From Health Data Standards to Better Health. The goals of the series are for participants to be able to:

  • Use the jargon associated with health IT to be able to communicate effectively with IT staff and administrators
  • Name relevant health data standards and describe how they are used
  • Describe NLM products and services that enrich and inform electronic health records (EHRs) and other health data systems
  • Identify roles for librarians on the health IT team and in the research process
