About Bioinformatics at the University of Missouri - Kansas City

Our graduates master core competencies that allow them to participate in biological research, clinical and population health research, or research to develop innovative information systems. We work passionately to equip the next generation of health researchers by emphasizing patient-oriented research in the context of state-of-the-art medical informatics.

All of our students in the Bioinformatics program at the University of Missouri - Kansas City have earned a bachelor’s level degree from a nationally-accredited university. Many of our students have also earned a graduate degree or a graduate level professional degree in various fields. Their diverse backgrounds include biology, computer science, mathematics, and other allied health professions. Often our students have limited clinical experience and need exposure to the skills necessary to thrive in the evolving field of clinical research.

What do our students do after graduation?
