Postdoctoral Training in Biomedical Informatics

Postdoctoral training is for those who already possess a doctoral level research degree (PhD, DSc), or professional degree (MD, DO, DDS).

  • If you are interested in postdoctoral training which leads to an MS degree, then apply to our Academic MS program. (You could also apply to the PhD program if for some reason you wanted a second PhD, but we do not recommend this.)
  • If you are looking for a postdoctoral research position without required classwork, then you should apply directly to the relevant faculty, generally in response to posted listings of postdoctoral positions. See the general information about postdoctoral training at Stanford. Also, see our faculty research page.
