BMI Program Overview

The BMI program brings together existing informatics education programs at multiple campuses into a comprehensive interdisciplinary education program including the MSIA Health Informatics Program, the MSIA Pathology Bioinformatics program, the College of Public Health and the UNO Bioinformatics and Public Health Informatics efforts.

The Joint UNMC/UNO Biomedical Informatics Graduate Program is a multidisciplinary, interprofessional effort integrating the theory and practice of information technology management, computer science, decision support systems, and applied computing with clinical science, biological science, bio-imaging, and public health. Students study and pursue “the effective uses of biomedical data, information, and knowledge for scientific inquiry, problem solving and decision making, motivated by efforts to improve human health.” (AMIA).


The strength of this joint program co-located at UNMC and UNO lies in the ability to leverage expertise across The University of Nebraska campuses to provide a strong educational & research program with strengths in biologic, healthcare and technological aspects of biomedical informatics.
