As a computer information systems major with a history of implementing innovative IT solutions, troubleshooting/maintaining IT systems, and database management, I wanted to go into a field that was high in demand and ever-changing so that I could always be challenged. I began my college career as a biology major and switched over to IT after a couple of years. Even though I enjoyed biology, especially the systematic part of it, I loved programming and information technology even more. This led me to pursue a Master’s degree in Biomedical Informatics which happens to involve the two: Biology and Information Technology! In this program, I have been challenged, motivated, and enlightened by the professors along with the content they teach. The knowledge and skills one learns in this program makes a tangible difference for individuals and systems in biomedicine and health overall.
