Department of Biomedical Informatics


Academic Programs

Biomedical informatics (BMI) combines ideas from computer science and quantitative disciplines such as decision science to solve problems in biology and medicine. Our new Bachelor of Science (BS) program will educate undergraduate students in the skills and knowledge to work in the field or pursue graduate education. We also have many students who are interested in applying to medical school.

Our graduate programs (MS and PhD) emphasize the theories and methodologies of BMI as well as instruction in cross-cutting areas such as knowledge representation, data mining and modeling. Graduates will be able to contribute to the latest research in health care and biomedical fields that will define the industry for future generations.

We accept graduate applicants from various academic backgrounds including biological, medical, or quantitative disciplines.

Health Informatics, MAS

Health Informatics, MAS

The MAS degree in health informatics is a flexible program formatted to meet the needs of working professionals. Core courses provide a background in clinical informatics, while electives allow students to specialize in focus areas such as data science or mobile health. The degree program prepares graduates with skills for careers in a wide range of health care settings. Professionals in nonhealth fields can also develop the skills needed to transition into careers in this rapidly expanding field.

Integrated Behavioral Health -Clinical (Graduate Certificate)

The certificate program in integrated behavioral health - clinical is designed to provide training to clinicians who aspire to work in integrated primary care behavioral health. Despite the growing need for behavioral health providers who can promote the physical and mental health of primary care patients, there remain few opportunities for specific clinical training in the field.
