Biomedical Informatics, MBMI

The Master of Biomedical Informatics (MBMI) program seeks to provide state-of-the-art graduate-level educational and training opportunities in biomedical informatics (BMI), adhering to the best practices as established by national competency standards, to create the next generation of biomedical informatics and practitioners.


The MBMI program requires students to complete 10 course units, including required courses, electives, and a capstone project. In addition, students must complete the online HIPAA and CITI training modules required of all PSOM students. MBMI students are also expected to participate in the annual Informatics Day, organized by the Institute for Biomedical Informatics.

The MBMI course sequence is flexible, allowing students to pursue required courses and electives at their own pace, provided they complete all requirements within 4 years of matriculation. A typical student might complete the program in two years.
