Courses

Course Number Course Name
BIO 591 Seminar: NIH Grant Writing
A small class emphasizing discussion, presentations by students and written research papers.
BMD 502 Foundations of Biomedical Informatics Methods I
Survey the methods and theories underlying the field of biomedical informatics. The course explores techniques in mathematics, logic, decision science, computer science, engineering, cognitive science, management science and epidemiology, and demonstrates the application to healthcare and biomedicine.
BMI 102 Introduction to Public Health/Imaging Informatics
Introduces existing and future applications of biomedical informatics. Overview of history and present state of the field. Second course in a three-semester series focusing on biomedical informatics applications in public health, including population studies and outbreak detection, and medical imaging, including telemedicine.
BMI 502 Foundations of Biomedical Informatics Methods I
First semester of a two-semester course surveying the methods of theories underlying the field of biomedical informatics.
BMI 540 Problem Solving in Biomedical Informatics
Theory and practice of software engineering principles as they apply to large- and medium-scale clinical systems from bench to bedside.
BMI 560 Teaching Biomedical Informatics
Student serves as a teaching assistant with a faculty member who is teaching either a required or elective course in the Biomedical Informatics curriculum. Such courses will generally be BMI courses but with the approval of the student's faculty program advisor may include a course that is an approved elective in the BMI program but is offered in another department within the university. The experience provides a significant teaching role, either lecturing or moderating small group sessions or laboratories. Grading class homework assignments and designing/grading examinations will also typically be part of the experience. Assisting other students outside of class and being available during office hours will also generally be part of the student teacher's role. A student may also receive 1 hour of credit for participating substantively in the design of a new course, working closely with a faculty member. Generally in such circumstances the student should then serve as course teaching assistant when it is offered for the first time (separate enrollment in this course).
BMI 570 Biomedical informatics Symposium
Students attend the BMI Symposium Speaker Series twice a month and the student journal club discussion on alternate weeks. During the journal club weeks, each student leads a discussion on a current topic pertinent to the field of biomedical informatics.
