The School of Biomedical Informatics (SBMI) is one of six schools at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) located in the Texas Medical Center—the largest contiguous medical center in the world. SBMI offers three types of graduate programs; certificates, M.S. and Ph.D.
SBMI is the only free-standing school in the nation dedicated exclusively to graduate programs in health informatics and the only academic program of its kind in Texas. SBMI’s mission is to educate future scientists and professionals in biomedical informatics and health information technology; conduct informatics research to improve health care and advance biomedical discovery; and develop and use advanced informatics tools to solve problems in health care.
Our talented, diverse faculty are experts in the theory and practice of informatics applied to the biomedical sciences and health care, specifically focusing on electronic health records, patient safety, clinical decision making, consumer informatics, semantics, disability informatics and telemedicine, among others.
