The MBMI is a two-year, in-person degree designed to help practicing clinicians become biomedical informaticians. Through a combination of coursework and a capstone project, students will become proficient in informatics methods and clinical applications. The program’s curriculum draws upon the key competencies identified in the American Medical Informatics Association’s 2017 guidelines, which identify the skills and knowledge that informatics practitioners need to set themselves apart in a rapidly developing field. Students who complete the program will be prepared to sit for the Clinical Informatics Subspecialty Board Examination or to pursue other formal certification in clinical informatics.
