The OHSU Biomedical Informatics Graduate Program from Oregon Health & Science University offers degrees in Health and Clinical Informatics at the graduate certificate, master's and PhD level.


The primary goal of both master's degree programs from Oregon Health & Science University, the Master of Science (MS) and the Master of Science Non-Thesis (MS-Non-Thesis) in Health and Clinical Informatics, is to educate future developers and managers of health care information systems. Individuals with a variety of backgrounds are provided a strong technical grounding in biomedical informatics, health and medicine, computer science, and research methods so that they may assume positions that require a thorough understanding of both information technology and the health care environment.

Learning outcomes

Health and clinical informatics transforms health care by analyzing, designing, implementing, and evaluating information and communication systems to improve patient care, enhance access to care, advance individual and population health outcomes, and strengthen the clinician-patient relationship. 

Professionals in clinical informatics occupy a wide variety of positions in health care, research, government, and other institutions, where they use data and information to improve individual health, health care delivery, public health, and biomedical research.


The Health and Clinical Informatics major of the master's program was accredited by the Commission for Accreditation of Health Informatics and Information Management (CAHIIM) in 2012.
