The cost is based on a per credit hour rate. A student is required to take 30 credits hours of coursework to obtain a Master’s in Biomedical and Health Informatics. Therefore, the cost would be estimated by multiplying 30 credit hours by the current per credit hour rate, which can be found on the Student Financial Services website. Tuition is evaluated and adjusted each year. Since the program can take more than a year to complete the aforementioned calculation would be an estimate of the total cost.
We are looking to enroll 8-10 students for Fall 2021.
We consider students from any undergraduate degree program.
Our students come from a wide range of disciplines, such as Biology, Computer Science, Statistics, Clinical Care, Health Care Management & Administration, and Health & Biomedical Sciences.
Currently, the program does not offer any financial aid directly to our MS students. Financial Aid is available through the Office of Financial Aid.
You can start the MS in Biomedical and Health Informatics program in either the Fall or Spring semester.
Yes, the program can be completed on a part-time basis. Part time students will take 3-6 credits (1-2 courses) each semester (Fall and Spring).
Note, if you are on a student visa, you must maintain full time status.
Students in our MS in Biomedical and Health Informatics program are eligible to apply for the PhD program in Biomedical and Health Informatics. Your application will be considered along with all the other PhD applications. The advantage is that your time in the MS program will allow you to develop relationships with and gain letters of recommendation from CWRU faculty. We do not guarantee admission to the PhD program upon completion of the MS program.
