Alert! SBMI Information on COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus)

During the Summer 2021 semester, the School of Biomedical Informatics will only offer courses online. This will allow the school to continue our educational mission, while doing our part to safeguard our community, especially our students.

Any newly admitted International students planning to begin in Summer 2021 have the option to start their program as an online student from their home country. Students also have the option to defer their admission to Fall 2021, when in-person courses will resume on campus.
