M.S. Program - Research
The goal of our Master's degree program is to train the next generation of researchers and leaders to advance the science of Biomedical and Health Informatics. Our M.S. program is research-focused; students must complete a thesis that aims at solving a research problem in the science of biomedical and health informatics. When broadly defined, we believe that a research-focused M.S. thesis can help our students achieve a broad range of career goals in the variety of domains that comprise BHI.
Our cross-cutting themes provide a more general vision statement for our graduate programs (MS and PhD) and the broad themes and goals we value in biomedical & health informatics education.
The core curriculum for our M.S. program is built around eight courses, and students may also select from the wide range of related courses available from BHI-affiliated programs, as well as the UW catalog as a whole.

M.S. Program - Applied (Offered Online only)
The Applied Master's program, Clinical Informatics and Patient-Centered Technologies (CIPCT) Online Master of Science degree is designed for physicians and other health professionals seeking to expand their knowledge of Health Information Technology (HIT) and then apply that knowledge to the improvement of clinical care quality and outcomes. CIPCT is offered jointly through the University of Washington's School of Medicine and School of Nursing.
CIPCT students will explore topics such as:
- Meaningful Use
- Using Health Information Technology (HIT) to Improve and Measure Quality of Care
- Adoption of HIT: Barriers, Challenges, and Solutions
- Compliance and the Electronic Medical Record (EMR)
- Working with EMR Vendors
- Patient-Centered Technologies
- Telehealth Systems and Applications
Management of Care Systems
