Biomedical & Health Informatics Master's Admission

A dynamic and flexible program 

Our program integrates biomedical and health informatics, requiring a broad-based core and extremely flexible electives to allow students with their mentor’s guidance to tailor a program that resonates with their personal interests and individual career trajectory.

While the usual time to completion through full-time enrollment is 16 months, there are multiple options available to students, including a non-thesis intensive pathway that can be completed in 11 months, as well as part-time study.

Students who are exploring options, may want to consider our Certificate program, with courses that all count towards the Master’s degree and towards the PhD program.
