McWilliams School of Biomedical Informatics


Located within the Texas Medical Center, the McWilliams School of Biomedical Informatics at UTHealth Houston provides a unique collaborative research and learning environment in Biomedical Informatics. The school's mission is interdisciplinary graduate education and research, bringing together the engineering, computer and biological sciences. The educational programs comprehends three broad areas of education and research: (1) Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, (2) Clinical and Health Informatics, and (3) Bioinformatics and Systems Medicine. Moreover, our school’s education programs are designed to cover the broadest student needs, including several Graduate Certificate programs (fully online), two MS programs (research and applied; both online and in-person), two doctoral degrees (PhD - emphasizing research and Doctorate of Health Informatics [DHI] - emphasizing application and executive training), and a growing number of dual-degree programs (e.g., MD/MS, PhD/MPH, and MS/MPH, etc.). In addition, we jointly run a ACGME accredited Clinical Informatics Fellowship program with UTHealth Houston McGovern Medical School, UT MD Anderson Cancer Center, and Memorial Hermann Health System.

The school's important work will define the future of healthcare: researchers will have better tools to advance treatments and cures; doctors will have better diagnostics and ways to access information; and patients will have better access to personalized care…anywhere…anytime.
