Biomedical Informatics Training at UC San Diego

A core mission of the DBMI is to provide biomedical informatics training for highly qualified individuals with background in biomedicine and health-related professions, computer science, engineering, statistics, and mathematics. This is done through formal PhD programs, postdoctoral training, and undergraduate and high school internships.
