BMI 7302 Theories and Frameworks for Biomedical Informatics Research

3 semester credit hours/meets part of PhD core competencies
Prerequisites: BMI 5300, BMI 5351, BMI 5310, and BMI 5311
Required for PhD students

This course introduces a variety of significant theories, frameworks and models that are relevant to biomedical informatics knowledge and research. Students will explore these through exploration of methods and application papers. By the end of the semester students will be able to identify theories, frameworks and models that are applicable to their doctoral research.

Upon successfully completing this course, students will:

  • Identify a theory, framework, or model applicable to a specified domain of biomedical informatics research.
  • Compare and contrast theories, frameworks, or models given a biomedical informatics research scenario.
  • Select and support, orally, and in written form, a single or combination of theory(ies), framework(s), or model(s) applicable to a carefully chosen research question or hypothesis.
