Graduate Training in Biomedical Informatics

Master of Science in Health Informatics (MSHI)

The Master of Science in Health Informatics (MSHI) program at the Medical University of South Carolina is designed to ensure graduates are prepared to select, implement, use, and evaluate health care information systems such as electronic health records (EHRs), data management, and analytic systems.

The program is primarily for working health care professionals who desire to specialize in the field of health care information systems, data management and analytic systems.


Biomedical Data Science and Informatics (BDSI) PhD Program

A joint Program between Clemson and MUSC the BDSI program began enrolling students since the Fall of 2017. Biomedical data science and informatics is an interdisciplinary field that applies concepts and methods from computer science and other quantitative disciplines together with principles of information science to solve challenging problems in biology, medicine and public health. Specialized tracks include precision medicine, population health, and clinical and translational informatics.

The program is a unique collaboration that brings together Clemson’s strengths in computing, engineering, and public health and MUSC's expertise in biomedical sciences to produce the next generation of data scientists, prepared to manage and analyze big data sources from mobile sensors to genomic and imaging technologies.
