The official webpage for alumni of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Biomedical Informatics (SBMI), formerly known as the School of Health Information Sciences (SHIS).

Alumni are invited to return to the school to attend or judge poster sessions in the fall and spring semesters as well as speak at career panels. The career panels feature 3 to 4 SBMI alumni who are professional biomedical informaticians; the speakers share their unique career paths, explain their motivation for entering the field of biomedical informatics and give insights to current students studying to become informaticians.

Additional social gatherings and networking opportunities for alumni are in development.

Please contact Marci Dallas for more information.
