Spring 2023 Semester Schedule

The courses included on this webpage are for the UTHealth Houston School of Biomedical Informatics certificate, masters, and doctoral (PhD and DHI) programs. Note that classes will be taught in-person (on-campus) and/or web-based (100% online) for spring 2023. Some courses are taught in both instructional formats so please refer to the course offerings below to confirm.

Students enrolled in in-person/on-campus classes must attend each weekly class session at SBMI's building space (6th floor of 7000 Fannin Street, Houston, TX 77030). Each class is offered on a specific weekday and held in a designated SBMI classroom, as noted below. Attendance in-person is mandatory and any student in an on-campus course missing more than three class meetings may be dropped at the discretion of the instructor. Please refer to SBMI's attendance policy for more details.

Students enrolled in web-based/online classes will complete all coursework 100% online and asynchronously, unless otherwise noted by the instructor(s). There is no requirement to visit campus during the spring semester for any SBMI web-based course.

Web-based courses with quizzes and exams may require students to use a webcam and the Google Chrome browser. See the complete list technical requirements.

The spring 2023 textbook list will be added prior to the start of the spring 2023 semester.
