Specialization Educational Objectives
In addition to the core objectives, a student graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Data Analytics with a specialization in Biomedical Informatics will demonstrate:
- an understanding of the core sub-disciplines of biomedical informatics that play a role in the design, implementation, and management of clinical, research, and translational information systems.
- an understanding of the contributing theoretical frameworks that are conventionally used to inform the design and use of biological and medical information systems, and integrative data discovery and analysis tools.
- critical evaluation skills that allow for the analysis of system design and or utilization of biomedical information systems and data.
Degree Planning Resources
Take a look at the suggested 4-year sample plan [pdf] and the advising curriculum sheet [pdf] for Biomedical Informatics. These should be used as guides only. Semester offerings are subject to change.
All students specializing in Biomedical Informatics must complete the following specialization requirements.
- MolGen 5660: Integrated Molecular and Cellular Biology for Non-Biologists (MolGen 4606 and 4500 approved as alternates)
- BMI 5710: Introduction to Biomedical Informatics
- BMI 5720: Introduction to Imaging Informatics (any BMI 5000-level course approved as alternate)
- BMI 5730: Introduction to Bioinformatics
- BMI 5740: Introduction to Research Informatics
- STAT 4911: Capstone in Data Analytics
Students specializing in Biomedical Informatics should also take the following courses:
- Choose one of the following:
- Biology 1113: Biological Sciences: Energy Transfer and Development
- Biology 1114: Biological Sciences: Form, Function, Diversity, and Ecology
These courses will satisfy the pre-requisite requirements for the required course MolGen 5660 and, as noted on the GE advising page, can be simultaneously used to fulfill the GE requirements in the Natural Science category.
