Training & Consulting

HMS Information Technology provides training on imaging, software, and research computing in the form of seminars and lectures. Through these information sessions, students can learn about the latest software & research development, with hopes to apply those skills outside of the seminars.

Imaging Solutions for Scientific Communication

Research Imaging Solution (RIS) seminars and handouts are designed to build on foundations acquired through application training at HMS/IT and the Center for Workplace Development in Cambridge. RIS skills training is based on the unique ways that researchers use proprietary scientific applications, Microsoft Office, and a variety graphics programs to create, acquire and edit images that are included in grant applications, journal articles and presentations to the scientific community. Half-day workshops are free and address the specific imaging and presentation needs of researchers.

To view upcoming training events please check the Planned Outages and Events calendar on the IT homepage.


Research Computing Training

The Research Computing provides high-level computer systems design and support for the HMS community. Research Computing services include maintaining a collaborative high performance computing environment, providing access to research software applications and conducting training classes.
