Biomedical informatics is new PhD option

Doctoral candidates can choose a new biomedical informatics track, beginning in fall 2011.

The new program provides graduate study and research in this emerging field and will be a part of Emory’s rapidly growing academic presence in biomedical informatics and computational life sciences.

Biomedical informatics is a multi-disciplinary field involving the collection, management, analysis and integration of data for biomedical research and health care delivery.

The program is designed to attract students from diverse backgrounds such as engineering, medicine and life sciences, but who share a common interest in advancing patient care, medical education, public health, and biomedical and clinical research.

“This new track will build on and accelerate the synergy at Emory recently created by numerous multidisciplinary programs in informatics,” says Joel Saltz, director of the Emory Center for Comprehensive Informatics.
