I’ve finished up my course work at Oregon Health and Sciences University and now am an official Biomedical Informaticist!OHSU Cert. Biomedical Informatics John Norris

It is quite a program.  While I had researched BMI by myself for about a year prior to applying to OHSU, the quantity and quality of content in the courses was almost overwhelming.  I would highly recommend OHSU’s program to those who want to get up to speed fast, or go in-depth.

Some of the best parts, and a bit of a surprise to me, are my fellow students.  There are a lot of clinicians, many of them MDs, even some CMIO’s.   These folks had already been dealing with BMI issues at work, and were a fountain of real world examples and questions.

The certificate was all graduate level courses, and I can apply them to a Masters as well as a Doctorate.  It would be great to continue, but I’m would really like to use my experience and start helping folks out directly.

    I think Indiana U. in Bloomington recently opened a big bioinformatics center. I went to IU for 2 years; it’s a great school.

    I am interested in the subject and hope to learn more soon.
