Fall 2021 Semester Schedule

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

Effective August 30th, fall 2021 courses will follow the same instructional format utilized for spring 2021. 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. The in-person attendance schedule will be available in Canvas and is subject to change.

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. [read more]

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.
