Prospective Student Open House
Sat, Nov 7th 2015
Discover the Leading Program in Biomedical Informatics
We welcome you to join us for our Open House and panel discussion on Saturday, November 7th, 2015, to explore the educational opportunities available to help you pursue a career in the emerging field of biomedical informatics. As the U.S. strives to implement electronic health records at all medical institutions by 2015, positions at the intersection of information technology and healthcare will continue to be a primary focus. In addition, the wealth of data coming out of gene sequencing, genomics and biological studies is creating numerous positions in bioinformatics to help translate this information into diagnostics and therapeutics for medicine.
Come meet our faculty, admissions representatives, current students and alumni. Learn about our programs in Clinical Informatics, Bioinformatics & Computational Biology and Health Information Management, and hear from our current students about their educational experiences. Finally, have your questions answered during our informal Q&A session.
Pizza lunch will be served during our registration and poster session starting at 11:30. We are pleased to welcome you, your friends and family members. Please be sure to submit the registration form below to secure your spot.
