Program Overview

Completion of the PhD degree in the Biomedical Informatics (BMI) Program will typically take 4 years.

Requirements Overview
Program requirements for the PhD and the MD/PhD are very similar except that the MD/PhD students receive credit for medical school coursework completed prior to entering the BMI program. To remain in the MD / PhD program, it is critical to complete the dissertation defense by October of the sixth year. During the PhD program, students are required to complete three longitudinal clinical clerkships.
