The Graduate Program in Biomedical Informatics offers a Doctorate of Philosophy degree. The Doctorate of Philosophy degree requires a minimum of 55 credit hours.  Students with no previous graduate credit will be required to complete additional hours beyond the 55 credit hour minimum that are required for the degree to fulfill the 72 graduate semester credit hour requirement of the Arkansas Department of Higher Education.

The primary objective of the doctoral degree program is to develop the ability to pose compelling scientific questions and propose new methods in Biomedical Informatics. Doctoral program objectives also include those at the master’s and graduate certificate programs.

The four tracks include:

  • Clinical Informatics – Generating, managing and using information and information systems in health care settings.
  • Clinical Research Informatics – The use of data to design, conduct and report clinical studies.
  • Imaging Informatics – The acquisition, management and processing of clinical images in healthcare and research.
  • Translational Bioinformatics – Leveraging information at the molecular and cellular levels to improve human health.

Below is a list of course descriptions. The course descriptions correspond to the courses in the above curriculum for each track.
