Undergraduate Accelerated Master’s (4+1) program 
Certificate in Biomedical Informatics

Undergraduate students have the opportunity to earn both a Bachelor of Arts/Science and a Master of Science in Biomedical Informatics over the course of five years through the Undergraduate Accelerated Master’s (4+1) Program. The program is an integrated program that overlaps graduate curriculum into the student's undergraduate work, which provides the opportunity to graduate with the Bachelor’s degree and at the same time complete their graduate certificate in biomedical informatics.

SBMI has collaboration agreements with the following institutions whose students are eligible to participate in this integrated curriculum:

Texas A&M International University (TAMIU)
University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV)

Completing a graduate certificate in biomedical informatics at SBMI allows students to become more competitive candidates when applying to professional degrees such as nursing, medicine, dentistry or pharmacy.

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.
