Prospective Students


The Biomedical Informatics program welcomes prospective students interested in our graduate program to learn more about our specialized tracks in clinical informatics, and bioinformatics & computational biology. 

The OHSU Biomedical Informatics Graduate program is preparing the next generation of health and science informatics leaders, led by renowned DMICE faculty, cutting-edge biomedical informatics research and industry collaboration. The goal of the OHSU Biomedical Informatics Graduate Program is to train individuals for academic, professional, and research careers in the field at the intersection of biomedicine and information technology. 

Biomedical informatics is playing a key role in clinical and research areas, and there is great need for both informatics researchers to conceptualize and develop the new applications as we as practitioners implement them. As information technology and computing become more vital to understanding the vast amounts of data that the medical and scientific communities are confronted with, those in all areas of these fields must be prepared to contribute their knowledge, capabilities, research, and understanding.


Master of Science in Biomedical Informatics
Our Master of Science (MS) program offers thesis and non-thesis options for two majors: Health & Clinical Informatics and Bioinformatics & Computational Biomedicine. This program trains individuals to assume a wide variety of jobs in healthcare, industry, research, public health, and other settings.

PhD in Biomedical Informatics
The OHSU Biomedical Informatics PhD program prepares individuals for careers in research in two areas: Health & Clinical Informatics and Bioinformatics & Computational Biomedicine. Most students in the program are supported through our NIH National Library of Medicine T15 Training Grant. (This training grant also offers funded postdoc positions for those seeking research careers who already have a doctoral degree in other field.)   Special Events on PhD training programs including DMICE so please sign up: October 30, 2020 or November 12, 2020.

Clinical Informatics Fellowship Program
Our Clinical Informatics Subspecialty Fellowship trains physicians aiming to become board-certified in the new subspecialty of clinical informatics. The ACGME-accredited fellowship requires certification in a primary specialty and offers the option of enrolling in the MS program.
