Biomedical Informatics Education

Biomedical Data Science and Informatics (BDSI) Ph.D. Program 

The BDSI joint Program between Clemson and MUSC began enrolling students in the Fall of 2017. Biomedical data science and informatics is an interdisciplinary field that applies concepts and methods from computer science and other quantitative disciplines together with principles of information science to solve challenging problems in biology, medicine, and public health. Specialized tracks include precision medicine, population health, and clinical and translational informatics.

The program is a unique collaboration that brings together Clemson’s strengths in computing, engineering, and public health and MUSC's expertise in biomedical sciences to produce the next generation of data scientists, prepared to manage and analyze big data sources from mobile sensors to genomic and imaging technologies.
