Department of Biomedical Informatics

Financing Your Education

The department is committed to funding top students. Our packages are competitive and cover tuition, medical insurance and a generous stipend. Although funding is not guaranteed for all students, our students have been extremely successful securing support in faculty research programs as well with institutions that include the Mayo Clinic, Translational Genomics Institute, Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Barrow Neurological Institute, Maricopa Integrated Health System, Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center, and St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center. Students are strongly encouraged to contact individual faculty members early in the application process concerning research assistantships. Currently, over 90% of our students are fully funded.

During the first year of study, Ph.D. students will establish a vital relationship with their faculty research advisor who will assist in managing the student’s paid research assistantship opportunities throughout the duration of the student’s program of study.
