Message from the Biomedical Informatics Faculty Director

Welcome to the MSc in Biomedical Informatics program at the University of Chicago Graham School. We are so pleased you are interested in our program.

We are excited to introduce health and technology-based professionals to the field of biomedical informatics. Informatics is the study of how to gather, manage, analyze, and interpret information. It is a critical foundation for the future of all biomedical disciplines. With this in mind, this program has a focus on applied learning and tackling challenges in real-world scenarios. The University of Chicago and the wider professional network around the University possess unparalleled expertise, which we are eager to share with the next generation of healthcare leaders and researchers.

We have two application cycles per year for Spring and Autumn admission. If you have any questions, please contact us at
