1 Master of Medical Sciences (MMSc) in Biomedical Informatics Harvard Medical School Program Director: Alexa T. McCray, PhD Introduction Biomedical Informatics studies and pursues the effective uses of biomedical data, information, and knowledge for scientific inquiry, problem solving and decision-making, motivated by efforts to improve human health. 1 The field is interdisciplinary, drawing on traditional biomedical disciplines, as well as the science and technology of computing, biostatistics, information science, and health care policy. There is a common core of knowledge, skills, and experiences that all trainees need to equip them to engage in the field. Program Description The MMSc in Biomedical Informatics (BMI) is a two-year program composed of academic training, mentored research training and experience, and other career-enhancing activities. Each student chooses from one of four possible tracks: - Bioinformatics - Clinical Informatics - Imaging Informatics - Population Health Informatics Students receive didactic training in biomedical informatics and conduct their mentored research in an HMS-based laboratory. All students participate in a longitudinal seminar throughout the two-year program. A publicly defended thesis is a requirement for graduation. Requirements 2 Students take courses throughout the two-year period. Specific requirements are described in a subsequent section. o Students will be formally evaluated in each course, through oral and written work. o Students may choose courses at Harvard 3 with the guidance and permission of the Program, Track, and Course Directors. No later than the beginning of the second semester of study, each student chooses from one of four possible tracks: o Clinical Informatics (Track Director: Charles Safran, MD) o Population Health Informatics (Track Director: Kenneth Mandl, MD, MPH) o Imaging Informatics (Track Director: Ramin Khorasani, MD) o Bioinformatics (Track Director: Peter Tonellato, PhD) Students conduct mentored research in their home laboratories. Each student will also have an HMS faculty academic advisor, separate from the research mentor. A written thesis and an oral presentation and defense of the thesis are required. Specific requirements are described in a subsequent section. 1 American Medical Informatics Association. 2 Students are responsible for ensuring that they meet all degree requirements and are advised to verify with the Program Manager before the beginning of each semester that they have met all current requirements. 3 One HSPH 2.5 credit course = 2 HMS credits; one HSPH 5 credit course = 4 HMS credits; One HBS 3 credit course = 2 HMS credits; one FAS half course (1 semester) = 4 HMS credits. The HSPH one summer Clinical Effectiveness course = 8 HMS credits. (This course requires additional HSPH tuition.)

Course requirements for Harvard Medical School MMSc in Biomedical Informatics During the first year, students take the two-semester introductory course, one additional course each semester (the spring course is an intensive introduction to the student s chosen track), and the longitudinal research seminar. Mentored research is conducted in the student s home laboratory. To receive credit for the mentored research component, students must submit a 3-5 page paper describing their research work to the Program Director at the end of each semester. During the second year, students take one additional course, chosen in consultation with the Track Director and the Program Director, conduct thesis research, and participate in the longitudinal research seminar. 4 In addition to the formal courses listed above, all students must complete the online CITI (Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative) Responsible Conduct of Research course. Certificates of completion must be submitted to the Program Manager no later than the beginning of the second semester of study. 2
