Spring 2022 Semester Schedule

These courses are for the certificate, master's and doctoral programs in biomedical informatics.

Effective January 4th, courses for the spring 2022 semester will follow the same instructional format SBMI has utilized in recent semesters due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This means classes at the UTHealth School of Biomedical Informatics will be taught both in-person and online for spring 2022.

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 class session 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.

For details on the course attendance policy, please click here.

Students enrolled in web-based classes will complete all coursework 100% online. 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 of technical requirements.
