The Certificate, Master of Science, and PhD in Biomedical and Health Informatics (BHI) offer pragmatic, interdisciplinary areas of study immediately relevant in contemporary health systems or research enterprises. Our programs are unique in that they encompass both biomedical research and clinical care informatics with applications to health care delivery, precision medicine, accountable care organizations, and reproducible science.

Our programs provide grounding across multiple disciplines and will be of interest if you seek a career in which you:

  • Analyze patient diagnoses, treatments and outcomes, based on electronic health records, to inform clinical practice
  • Design or manage studies to inform quality and safety process improvements
  • Collaborate in analysis of large genetic and various “omics” studies, integrated with clinical or population data, to advance the understanding of diseases
  • Design and manage studies that draw from clinical, cohort or population data to assess and develop devices, therapeutics or other interventions

 


We bring together a diverse group of faculty from across Case Western Reserve University – the School of Medicine, the Weatherhead School of Business, and the School of Engineering – for a cross-disciplinary approach that offers the opportunity to craft tailored areas of study grounded in core competencies:

  • Data analytics
  • Biomedical, clinical and/or population health research
  • Computational and systems research design
