Are you looking to make a difference in healthcare through analytics and data science? A master’s degree in the burgeoning career field of informatics can help you do just that.
At Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, we offer four unique graduate degree options specifically designed to help you transform information into insight. Here, you can combine your love for math, science and technology as you take part in research and learn to shape “big data” into actionable information that can address some of the world's most pressing problems.
The Master of Science in Biomedical and Health Informatics is a versatile degree program designed to equip you to use data to improve individual and population health. More flexible than other programs of its kind, this degree trains you with data related to clinical trials, electronic health records and more, and can be completed full or part time in as little as 11 months.
As a student, you’ll benefit from mentorship by expert data scientists from across Case Western Reserve University, and can shape our curriculum to support your academic and career goals. And, you’ll enter fields expected to experience 14-22% growth in the next several years (U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics)—whether you’re interested in academia or industry, an MS in Biomedical and Health Informatics from CWRU will give you a competitive edge to achieve a high-paying career.
The Master of Science in Systems Biology and Bioinformatics is a two-year program designed to prepare you to lead big discoveries in laboratory and clinical settings. Our curriculum merges your interests in math, statistics, computers and biology, equipping you with the skills needed to develop computational models that offer new insight and understanding of big data.
With training faculty from more than 12 departments at Case Western Reserve University, this multidisciplinary degree program offers a truly customizable academic experience. And, it’ll prepare you to enter a field expected to grow nearly 20% by 2026 (U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics) with an average annual salary around $124,000. Whether you choose to work in industry, health care, or pursue a PhD, an MS in Systems Biology and Bioinformatics from CWRU will help you achieve success.
The Master of Public Health (MPH) program is a two-year program designed to offer a solid foundation in the unique health needs and challenges of any community. As a student here, you can concentrate your MPH studies on health informatics, learning how information and computer science are used to inform decisions on public health and clinical practice and research.
Our graduates enter the job field prepared to apply relevant technology to collect and curate data that aids with disease detection, surveillance and health management at the population level. Specifically, you’ll learn how clinical data are collected, aggregated, normalized and integrated; the standard health data exchange formats and vocabularies; and the ethical, regulatory and practical aspects of data security.
The Master of Science in Biostatistics is a practical, interdisciplinary program designed to prepare you for a data-based career in health systems, academic or research organizations, biotech companies and more. We offer four academic tracks—biostatistics (generalist track), genomics and bioinformatics, health care analytics, and social and behavioral science—that allow you to customize our curriculum to support your unique goals.
In as little as 11 months, you’ll be on your way to joining a field expected to experience 14-30% growth in the next several years (U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics)—whether you’re interested in becoming a biostatistician, data scientist, statistical programmer or pursue another career, an MS in Biostatistics from CWRU will prepare you for success.
