OHSU Biomedical Informatics Graduate Program: Open for Applications, ONC-Funded Scholarships

On his Informatics Professor blog (http://informaticsprofessor.blogspot.com), Bill Hersh reports that “Applications are now being accepted for scholarship funding from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) to study in the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) biomedical informatics graduate program.” (http://www.ohsu.edu/ohsuedu/academic/som/dmice/academics/index.cfm)

Full information on the scholarships is at www.ohsuscholarships.info

The initiative with OHSU will involve tuition scholarships for 135 students in their Graduate Certificate program and 13 students in their Master of Biomedical Informatics (MBI) program over the next three years. The latter will also receive a stipend and student health insurance while enrolled in the program. Enrollment for both programs will begin in Fall 2009.

To qualify for funding, students must be US citizens or permanent residents; must not have been enrolled in an informatics educational program on December 17, 2009 or earlier; must commit to study in one of six ONC-designated job roles; and must commit to completing the Graduate Certificate program in one year or the MBI program full-time and on-campus over 1 1/2 years.

Students not funded by the ONC scholarships will still be able to study in the program as they always have.

More details about the program are available on the OHSU Department of Medical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology (DMICE) Web site >>>
