The Internet is promoting active exchange of teaching materials and discussion among geographically distant collaborators. We envision that training in medical informatics can be better achieved if both onsite and online instruction are combined, provided that cultural and technological barriers are anticipated and the training program is prepared accordingly. We describe our Brazil/USA program in medical informatics, which includes components of onsite and online education, and discuss lessons learned during its ongoing implementation. Three onsite courses and one workshop have been planned, and two online courses are being developed.
