Fall 2017

Fourteen new students will start degree programs in Biomedical and Health Informatics this fall, including our inaugural class of four IPhD students in our brand new primary discipline.

Welcome, students!

This page was created for you. Here, we’ve compiled links to the most important documents and information you’ll need as you progress through your degree program.

New to academic programs in the Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics? Start with the student handbook for your program linked in the middle of the page. It’s a wealth of information on university systems, program expectations, and resources. Are you prepping for your first meeting with your faculty advisor? We’ve linked all of our Program of Study forms below, which you can use as a worksheet and guide as you plan for your enrollment. Explore course options from the link below. See all the classes we offer under the Medical Bioinformatics (MEDB) subject area, when and how they are offered, and who teaches them. Maybe you’ve been in a program for a year, and you’re thinking about your thesis and capstone options. We created a page just for you explaining each option. Visit that from the link. The Application for Graduation is one of the last forms you’ll need, and that is also linked below. We’ll continue to update announcements and add links. If you can’t find something you’re looking for, please email our department academic advisor Jennifer Tufts, tuftsj@umkc.edu. Please explore, and come back often.
