The Biomedical Informatics and Data Science (BIDS) PhD program provides opportunities for graduate students with diverse backgrounds to gain expertise in the field of biomedical informatics and data science, to train as future biomedical researchers and industry leaders, and to engage in scholarly activities under the guidance of experienced, field-leading informatics faculty.

Beyond an educational program, the mission of BIDS is to support biomedical informatics and data science practice through applied research in real-world settings. Throughout their training, students will interact with patients, providers, and the healthcare data ecosystem in addition to working at the bench. The BIDS program promotes interdisciplinary collaboration in solving problems in clinical practice, individual and population health, data science, and biomedical research, through the optimal use of information.
