NYU Graduate Training Program in Biomedical Informatics (BMI)
The Program in Biomedical Informatics (BMI) offers doctoral level training in Medical Informatics and Bioinformatics. The program's focus is on designing and deploying rigorous and high-impact methodological informatics innovations in Translational or Clinical Medicine. The BMI program is part of NYU’s Sackler Institute.
Students are accepted with backgrounds in biological, medical, or quantitative/computational disciplines. Strong applicants will have successfully completed at least one course in design and analysis of algorithms, several courses in college level mathematics and statistics, and will have strong programming skills in one or more general purpose programming languages. Prior experience in research in BMI is strongly encouraged.
Students earn a MS and pass a qualifier examination before eligibility for PhD candidacy. Aside from traditional didactic experiences, students receive training in collaborative science and consulting skills, industry-based practica, graduate level teaching, and a deep understanding of the field of BMI including exposure to research in allied and related sciences.
The BMI Program is housed in the Center for Health Informatics and Bioinformatics (CHIBI). Students have access to its resources which include: 18 informatics faculty, a state of the art High Performance Computing Facility, 6 informatics methods research laboratories, Best Practices Integrative Informatics Core that supports numerous consulting and collaborative science projects in the Medical Center, High-Throughput Assay Informatics services that include microarrays, next-generation sequencing and proteomics. Students also have access to Educational Informatics resources, Electronic Medical Record and other data for the purposes of primary and secondary research.
The BMI Program has additional 25 core faculty from the Courant Institute (Computer Science, Computational Biology, Mathematics, Systems Biology and Genomics), Stern School of Business, School of Continuing Education, Clinical and Translational Science Institute, School of Nursing, Biomedical Library, Translational Science Program and the Office of Professional Development. An ongoing seminar series and other activities ensure continuous exposure to educational and scientific opportunities in informatics.
