About this course

The Department of Biomedical Informatics and Medical Education is comprised of two units: (1) the Division of Medical Education and Evaluation and (2) the Division of Biomedical and Health Informatics. The Division of Medical Education and Evaluation provides training, research and service in educational areas central to medical education including faculty and course evaluation, construction and scoring exams, curriculum development, implementation of innovative educational methodologies such as standardized patients and web-based simulated patients, faculty development, and research consultation (www.meded.washington.edu). The Division of Biomedical and Health Informatics consists of a research and training program that emphasizes both basic and applied aspects of informatics with a view toward making a difference in people's lives through interdisciplinary collaboration between faculty and students (www.bhi.washington.edu). BHI houses a National Library of Medicine Training Grant in Biomedical and Health Informatics supporting pre- and postdoctoral fellows.

The Department of Biomedical Informatics and Medical Education offers courses in the theory and application of medical education and biomedical and health informatics. Courses are designed for faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, postgraduates and fellows in the health sciences who desire further training in the methods, issues, research, and technology of medical education and biomedical informatics. BIME offers applied and research master's and doctoral degrees, as well as fellowship training, in biomedical and health informatics.
