Biomedical Informatics Certificate

Program Coordinator: 

Biomedical Informatics (BMI) is an interdisciplinary field that combines knowledge of informatics and medial sciences to assist in the management of health and biomedical information. BMI has become an integral component of both clinical and translational research and healthcare infrastructure, increasing the demand for researchers and health professionals trained in BMI.

The Biomedical Informatics Certificate program is offered jointly by the University of Cincinnati's College of Engineering and Applied Science and College of Medicine in partnership with Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.

Students who are awarded the BMI certificate have a broad understanding of the field, knowledge of information technology solutions, and hands-on experience with electronic health records and other clinical informatics systems. Graduates will also understand the principles of data science and its application to clinical, genomic, and other large-scale data sets in the context of studies on disease etiology, personalized treatment, and optimal clinical interventions. 

BMI Certificate Curriculum

The curriculum consists of four core courses and two electives for a total of 19 semester credit hours. Credits can be obtained for completing equivalent courses within home programs, either in biology/medicine or engineering/computer science fields.


Candidates must have already completed an undergraduate degree. You may apply for the BMI certificate through the University of Cincinnati Admissions. Admission to the program is dependent on the completion of prerequisites.
