This list does not include the more than 2500 people who have completed the AMIA-OHSU 10×10 (“ten by ten”) course, whose curriculum is identical to the BMI 510 – Introduction to Biomedical & Health Informatics course, which serves as an introductory course in our Health & Clinical Informatics major. A couple hundred people completing the OHSU 10×10 course have gone on enroll in our graduate program, and in fact two have progressed through the entire spectrum from 10×10 to Graduate Certificate to Master’s to PhD.
