Celebrating Twenty Years of Graduates of the OHSU Biomedical Informatics Graduate Program

Each June, we are pleased to announce students who take part in OHSU Commencement as graduates of the degree and certificate programs of the Biomedical Informatics Graduate Program. This weekend’s OHSU Convocation marks the 20th year of graduates from the program, and there are 48 graduates, distributed among our four graduate programs:

  • PhD – 3
  • Master of Science – 6
  • Master of Biomedical Informatics – 20
  • Graduate Certificate – 19

This group brings the total number of alumni of our program to around 700, dating back to the first graduates in 1998.

(NOTE: The individuals listed below are in the graduation program but this does not indicate they will be receiving their diplomas, as some are still completing graduation requirements and will receive their diplomas soon. Also, pictures from the department banquet and convocation will appear in separate postings in this blog soon.)
