The Department of Biomedical Informatics (BMI) based in UB’s Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, offers the Master of Science (MS) degree to educate and train biomedical informaticians for leadership positions in healthcare, business, academics, and biomedical research. The program’s goal is to serve as the foundation for a challenging and successful career.
The Department's graduate training programs emphasize self-study, collaboration, and problem solving around five core areas:
- Bioinformatics and Translational Research Informatics
- Clinical Informatics and Decision Support
- Clinical Population Research and Public Health Informatics
- Biomedical Ontology
- Sociotechnical and Human-centered Design
In addition to the core faculty, BMI includes 31 primary and adjunct faculty members with a broad range of informatics research interests from many different UB departments in the Schools of Medicine, Dental Medicine, Public Health and Health Professions, Pharmacy, Nursing, Engineering, Management, and the College of Arts and Sciences.
Biomedical informatics offers students the opportunity to blend the health sciences with the computational sciences, fostering the solution of complex biological system questions. Students will develop technical skills that have the potential to impact the future of patient care, whether at the bedside, in the C-suite, or in the lab.
