The interdisciplinary field of biomedical informatics combines ideas from computer science and quantitative disciplines such as statistics and decision science to solve problems in biology and medicine.  Our new Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Informatics  degree program will educate undergraduate students in the informatics skills and knowledge to work in the growing field of biomedical informatics.


Our graduate programs emphasize the theories and methodologies of biomedical informatics while providing substantial instruction in cross-cutting areas such as data and knowledge representation, data mining and predictive modeling. Graduates from our program will be able to contribute to the growing body of research in healthcare and related fields that will define the industry for future generations.


Although BMI accepts graduate applicants from various academic backgrounds, applicants with a background in biological, medical or quantitative disciplines will be well prepared prior to entering our graduate programs. Strong applicants to our graduate programs will have successfully completed at least one course in design and analysis of algorithms, intermediate to advance college level mathematics and statistics, and possess programming experience. For more information regarding our graduate applicant requirements, please view our FAQ page.
