Recent trends in biomedical and health informatics education

implications for practice, research, and policy.

Abstract

The discipline of biomedical and health informatics has seen substantial change in practice as well as education in recent years. Most early programs in the field focused on either post-doctoral apprenticeship-like experiences or PhD degrees, usually with a strong research emphasis. More recently, however, a variety of new educational options have emerged, from certificate and professional master's programs to shorter courses, such as the AMIA 10x10 program. Other programs have emerged from the health information management field as well as at the undergraduate level. At the same time, the real growth and need for informatics expertise has emerged more in operational than academic settings. In this talk, an informatics educational leader and innovator will describe these changes, the research data that has explored them, and how they have impacted informatics educational programs, including his own at Oregon Health & Science University.
