PhD in Biomedical Informatics

Our PhD program provides intensive coursework and research training in biomedical informatics. The primary goal of the program is to train students to be independent researchers when they graduate; many of our PhD graduates go on to academic careers. A key component of the PhD program is the completion of a dissertation, which develops the student's research skill and domain expertise.
