The mission of the Biomedical Informatics Graduate Program at the University of Nebraska Medical Center is to develop the next generation of biomedical informaticians who will advance research and practice in contemporary information and knowledge management using innovative evidence-based approaches to improve human health. 


This joint program involving UNMC & UNO leverages expertise across campuses to provide an educational and research program with strengths in biologic, health care and technological aspects of biomedical informatics. It is a multidisciplinary, interprofessional effort integrating the theory and practice of information technology management, computer science, decision support systems, and applied computing with clinical science, biological science, bio-imaging, and public health.


The Biomedical Informatics graduate program at the University of Nebraska Medical Center consists of a common required foundation, research seminars and colloquia, a major field of study (track at UNMC), and a minor field of study or cognate area of study (any related field of study for which a graduate degree is offered on either campus).

Individualized programs of study will be designed to accommodate students existing knowledge and career goals.  Distance options (telephone conferencing, virtual network, and e-learning tools) are available for most courses.  Students work closely with faculty members involved in informatics research and development. 

Research opportunities exist in the basic science at UNMC, information technology at UNO, and applied sciences at the College of Public Health and the College of Medicine.
