Alert! SBMI Information on COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus)
Effective August 25, fall 2020 classes at the UTHealth School of Biomedical Informatics will be taught both in-person and online, as previously planned. Students registered for in-person SBMI courses are expected to attend the classes during the scheduled time and day each week. These live sessions will be delivered using web-conferencing (GoToMeeting or Webex). Additionally, once per month, these in-person classes will have a pre-scheduled, required on-campus session. In-person classes on-campus will occur one time in September, October, November, and December per course. The in-person attendance schedule will be available in Canvas.
Students enrolled in web-based classes will complete all coursework 100% online. There is no requirement to visit campus during the fall semester for any SBMI web-based course.
Students with questions or concerns should contact the Office of Academic Affairs at SBMIAcademics@uth.tmc.edu.

The School of Biomedical Informatics continues to monitor and prepare for possible disruptions due to the COVID-19 virus. With that in mind, we have developed this page specifically to support the School of Biomedical Informatics community with information and links to approved technology resources. Remote connectivity information is provided for students, faculty, and staff as well as links to campus health services and governmental entities. Information on these pages will be updated as applicable, so please check here frequently.
The University has created a COVID-19 website with guidance on travel restrictions and policies, FAQs, and information on the virus and prevention methods.
At SBMI, UT-HIP is working on visualizing confirmed COVID-19 cases. Dashboard creator and data scientist Salsawit Shifarraw is adding new content so be sure to check it daily.
