Discover the Leading Program in Biomedical Informatics

We welcome you to join us for our Annual Open House and panel discussion every year to explore the educational opportunities available to help you pursue a career in the field of biomedical informatics. Whether improving electronic health records or applying advanced data analytics, recent research shows continued growth in job opportunities at the intersection of information technology and healthcare. 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.

Each year meet our faculty, admissions representatives, current students and alumni at the open house. Learn about our programs in Health and Clinical Informatics (HCIN) and Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (BCB) and hear from our current students about their educational experiences. Finally, have your questions answered during our informal Q&A session.

Please contact Lauren Ludwig for more information regarding our graduate programs and the open house.
