MS & PhD in Biomedical Informatics
Biomedical informatics is an interdisciplinary field that combines ideas from computer science and quantitative disciplines (statistics, data science, decision science) to solving challenging problems in biology and medicine. The BMI program provides coursework and mentored research training, with a focus on methods development, drawing heavily on quantitative and computational approaches.
The BMI program offers the MS and PhD degrees. The MS degrees can be completed on-campus or through the distance education program while employed full-time.
Students in the program typically spend 2-5 years in coursework and research, depending on the degree. Some enter the program with prior graduate (MS, PhD, or MD) training.
