ONC Program

At this time, we no longer have funding available for the ONC tuition assistance program.
If you are still interested in the Graduate Certificate as a self paying (financially responsible for your own tuition) student, the application for the fall 2012 term will close on September 1, 2012.

Oregon Health & Science University was awarded $5.8 million to advance the widespread adoption and meaningful use of health information technology (HIT) by educating professionals to work in this rapidly growing field. Part of the grant went directly to supporting the education of about 150 additional students over three years in OHSU's biomedical informatics graduate program while establishing additional capacity that will meet the ongoing needs of an expanded work force. The other part of the award went to establishing a national dissemination resource for health IT curricula at OHSU.The funding also enabled two cohorts of 6-7 students to enroll in OHSU's on-campus Master of Biomedical Informatics (MBI) Program, including tuition assistance, a stipend and student health insurance. This funding is provided via a training grant from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC).

More About Our Program
OHSU offers a full range of graduate programs in biomedical informatics for cutting-edge and rewarding careers using information and associated technologies to advance individual health, healthcare, biomedical research, and public health.

There are two main tracks in the program: clinical informatics and bioinformatics/computational biology. The clinical informatics track, with the exception of the PhD program, is available via distance learning.

Other forms of financial aid, such as our National Library of Medicine Training Grant, are available for full-time on-campus PhD or postdoctoral master's students in both tracks.
