The department of Biomedical Informatics partners with the College of Public Health to offer two degrees, a Master of Public Health (MPH) and Master of Science (MS), each with a specialization in biomedical informatics.
Through the specialization in biomedical informatics, students will learn about methodology and tools for addressing problems that range from big data and biomolecular analyses to implementation science and clinical informatics. The wide range of faculty expertise in the department provides students with the opportunity to learn about diverse research that falls within the field of biomedical informatics. In addition, students in our programs will receive a strong background in public health, including coursework in biostatistics and epidemiology.
Our degree programs are designed to cultivate biomedical informatics expertise in public health and clinical practitioners and researchers. Previous graduates have pursued a variety of careers, including positions at academic institutions, health care organizations, and health departments, and health technology companies.
