Alert! SBMI Information on COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus)
Effective January 4, spring 2021 courses will follow the same instructional format utilized for fall 2020. This means classes at the UTHealth School of Biomedical Informatics will be taught both in-person and online.
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 January, February, March, and April for each 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 spring 2021 semester for any SBMI web-based course.
Students with questions or concerns should contact the Office of Academic Affairs at SBMIAcademics@uth.tmc.edu.
