Stanford Biomedical Informatics
The Biomedical Informatics Training Program is an interdisciplinary graduate and postdoctoral training program, part of the Biosciences Program at Stanford University’s School of Medicine. Our mission is to train future research leaders to design and implement novel quantitative and computational methods that solve challenging problems across the entire spectrum of biology and medicine. The program is flexible, and attracts applicants with training in biology, research and clinical medicine, computer science, data science and analytics, statistics, engineering and related disciplines. We have an active diversity recruitment program, and strongly encourage applications from traditionally underrepresented minorities, those from disadvantaged backgrounds, and those with disabilities. See our Diversity page for more information.
