Become a part of this multidisciplinary field in which you will learn to translate biomedical data into information and knowledge that improves health outcomes.
Biomedical informatics is a multidisciplinary field that involves the understanding of information sciences and technology and their application to the fields of biomedical science, clinical imaging, health care practice and population health.
The BMI curriculum includes biomedical informatics, computer science, biology, chemistry, mathematics and statistics. Students learn approaches to analyzing data, modeling knowledge and using these capabilities to address problems in the biomedical and health domains. Students have the opportunity to do research alongside world-renowned faculty who are experts in bioinformatics, imaging informatics, clinical informatics and population health informatics.
Graduates of the program have a broad set of informatics knowledge and skills that will enable them to contribute to many areas of health and biomedicine in their future work.
A major map outlines a major's critical requirements, courses, and optimal course sequence and aids students in remaining on track to graduation.
While circumstances vary between students and their paths towards graduation (utilizing placement testing to fulfill required math or foreign language courses, fulfilling multiple General Studies requirements with one course, etc.), completing the courses listed in a major map fulfills all of the requirements for graduation.
All students are required to meet general university admission requirements:
