Come One, Come All to Study Informatics at Oregon Health & Science University

Student recruitment for academic programs in 2020 has gone mostly virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, many universities have created videos to inform prospective students about their programs, including Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU).

Our Master of Science (MS) program offers thesis and non-thesis options for two majors: Health & Clinical Informatics and Bioinformatics & Computational Biomedicine. This program trains individuals to pursue a wide variety of professional careers in healthcare, industry, research, public health, and other settings.

The OHSU Biomedical Informatics PhD program prepares individuals for careers in research also in two areas: Health & Clinical Informatics and Bioinformatics & Computational Biomedicine. Most students in the program are supported through our NIH National Library of Medicine T15 Training Grant. (This training grant also offers funded postdoc positions for those seeking research careers who already have a doctoral degree in other field.)

Our Clinical Informatics Subspecialty Fellowship trains physicians aiming to become board-certified in the new subspecialty of clinical informatics. The ACGME-accredited fellowship requires certification in a primary specialty and offers the option of pursuing the MS degree.

OHSU also offers continuing education, both in a continuing-education annual update (with CME and MOC-II for physicians) and at the introductory level in the 10×10 program in partnership with the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA).

All of these programs are part of the biomedical informatics education family of programs at OHSU. These videos are on our YouTube channel, which also includes videos of presentations at our weekly research seminar, which has also continued during the pandemic.
