Biomedical informatics applies computer science, information technology, probabilistic reasoning, cognitive science, and other quantitative and technical methods and skills to biomedicine and health care delivery. These skills are increasingly recognized as essential for progress. Biomedical science, health care delivery and public health impacts increasingly rely on multidisciplinary expertise; computer technology; learning and analytics from diverse data sources; and complex collaborations.
A medical degree is a vocational degree, allowing you to develop the practical and clinical capabilities specific to medicine, as well as the professional and personal attributes necessary to become a doctor
Jobs directly related to your degree include:
General practice doctor
There are over 60 specialist areas of medicine; information on each can be found at NHS Health Careers.
Jobs where your degree would be useful include:
Healthcare scientist, genomics
Higher education lecturer
International aid/development worker
Mental health nurse
Research scientist (life sciences)
Remember that many employers accept applications from graduates with any degree subject, so don't restrict your thinking to the jobs listed here.
Biomedical informatics combines information technology, data science and knowledge to improve health. The program will educate undergraduate students in the informatics knowledge and skills that will enable them to: Improve the quality and reduce the cost of patient health care. I want to find another Bachelor Course Consolidate patient health history and interventions across hospitals and clinics. Provide the right information patient health to clinicians. Reduce clinical errors and waste. Minimize hospital visits. Manage patient clinical condition at home. Monitor patient health at home. Shorten hospital stays. Improve patient hospital experience. Optimize patient time in the hospital. Provide patient with faster access to resources. Detect disease early. Make early detection of patient condition. Track patient disease progression. Support clinician in making better diagnosis. Improve the precision of diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of patient disease. Career Opportunities This rapidly expanding field prepares graduates for careers in a wide range of health care settings. Graduates of the program are employed in positions such as biomedical analysts, medical information analysts, software analysts, electronic health records analysts, public health informatics scientists and research associates, among others. Some may see this program as a unique way to combine their interest in life sciences and technology. Others may find this degree the first step toward medical school or advanced medical research or to continued graduate-level study in biomedical informatics.
