The introduction of electronic health records and health databases within the clinical setting has transformed health care. Medical Informatics has emerged as a new field of study that bridges human-computer interactions in the health care space, as well as how the data we collect in these settings can be leveraged to improve patient safety, outcomes, and quality. Graduates of the program will be well-qualified for rewarding careers as health data analysts, system evaluators, and annotators.
The GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences offers the following Bachelor's of Science program for Biomedical Informatics. We are not accepting students to this program at this time, but please refer to our other program offerings.
