 Bioinformatics and Medical Informatics Graduate Program at San Diego State University

Ever wondered what it takes to discover a new drug, or to understand
the underlying mechanism of a disease? It takes chemistry and biology,
but it also takes computer science. The complexity of biological
systems and vast amounts of data that new technologies produce require
computer know-how.

The BMI program (http://informatics .sdsu.edu/) at SDSU has two
tracks: Bioinformatics and Medical Informatics.  Bioinformatics deals
with the underlying mechanisms of disease and health, while the
Medical Informatics track deadl with Information technology in the
healthcare system, hospitals, clinics, etc.  This includes EHR, EMR,
etc.

Today there is an acute need for graduates in both areas with just
such a multidisciplinary background, both in academia and in industry.
In the industry, this need expands beyond biotechnology,
pharmaceutical and health care sectors, and is felt in such areas as
homeland security and information technology.

The BMI program at SDSU offers a graduate level multidisciplinary
education to students with a background in chemistry, biology,
computer science, mathematics, physics or engineering. The first year
of the program is spent on areas complementary to the student's
background, while the second year is spent on the student's
specialization. The program offers two paths, one for a traditional
Master's of Science with a thesis, and the second for a Professional
Science Master's (PSM) track comprising an internship and courses in
business and management to better prepare students for leadership
roles in the industry.

The BMI graduate program is seeking highly motivated students for this
innovative and in-demand program.

Online Application Deadline: February 1, 2010.
Documents deadline (GRE scores, transcripts, etc.): March 1, 2010.
