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.

Come meet our faculty, admissions representatives, current students and alumni. 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.

We are pleased to welcome you, your friends and family members. Please be sure to submit the registration form to secure your spot. 

Date: the next seminar will happen in the Fall 2021.

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