It is widely acknowledged that there are not enough qualified individuals to meet the demands of the current biomedical research and practice environment. There is a crucial, and currently largely unmet, need for trained individuals who are able to integrate, interpret, and act upon the large-scale, high-throughput, and complex data that are generated in the course of biomedical research and the practice of medicine. As such, our primary goal in offering this Master of Biomedical Informatics degree is to contribute to the cadre of highly trained independent and successful researchers in the field of biomedical informatics. Our goal is to equip our students with the knowledge, skills, and experiences needed to engage meaningfully in this field.
