During the last semester of undergraduate study, students will apply to the Master’s degree program at SBMI to complete the remaining semester credit hours required for the Master of Science in Biomedical Informatics. The remaining 30 semester credit hours can be completed in one year, if enrolled full-time.
A student completing the 4+1 program and the Master of Science program will have the education, skill set and experience needed to enter the workforce in a variety of biomedical informatics fields. Students will be well prepared to continue with their education through doctoral studies or in professional degrees.
The course requirements for earning both the undergraduate degree and graduate certificate from SBMI will vary by participating institution and major. The 4+1 program integrated schedule provides guidance on graduate courses/certificate completion throughout the student’s last years of their undergraduate program.
