The mission of the Biomedical Informatics Graduate Program is to develop the next generation of biomedical informaticians who will advance research and practice in contemporary information and knowledge management using innovative evidence-based approaches to improve human health.  The Biomedical Informatics Graduate Program was formally approved by the Regents of the University and the State of Nebraska in the Spring of 2013.  This program brings together experts and resources from multiple campuses including the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC), the University of Nebraska - Omaha (UNO) and the University of Nebraska Lincoln (UNL).

This joint program involving UNMC & UNO leverages expertise across campuses to provide an educational and research program with strengths in biologic, health care and technological aspects of biomedical informatics. It 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.
