Beginning in fall 2019, students may pursue the master of professional science in biomedical and health informatics (BMHI) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in a new way: online.
Dr. Leah Townsend, director of Graduate School Professional Programs at UNC-Chapel Hill, said the online version of the program is in response to the evolving needs of today’s graduate students. Both the online and residential versions of the BMHI degree’s coursework will also offer part-time and fast-track options, giving students the flexibility they need, program leaders said.
“With strong backing from UNC-Chapel Hill and our industry partner United Health Foundation, we are happy to offer the new online master’s degree in biomedical and health informatics,” said Dr. Javed Mostafa, director of the Carolina Health Informatics Program. “Our hope is that the addition of the online option will offer our current and new students a powerful medium to engage with the Carolina Health Informatics Program and complete the BMHI master’s degree in the most flexible and effective manner.”
