Department of Biomedical Informatics

National-Level Training in Biomedical Informatics

In addition to Emory's Computer Science Department (through our joint CSI program), we have a strong relationship with Georgia Tech through our joint Georgia Tech/Emory top-ranked biomedical engineering program and Georgia Tech's Machine Learning program, which help drive some of the best students in the world to our door. If you are interested in applying on any of these programs, please see the links above.

Emory’s association with the Centers for Disease Control, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, American Cancer Society, Georgia Institute of Technology, Morehouse School of Medicine, and other institutions in the Atlanta Metro area, provides distinct opportunities for biomedical informatics training at the national level. These regional assets set a unique stage for joint training opportunities, coursework, and hands-on research experience in medicine, informatics, public health, and computer science.

Growing Our Department

Established in 2011, the Biomedical Informatics Department is relatively small, with just over 70 researchers operating like an agile institute or startup. But we’re expanding rapidly, doubling our research income in the past year alone.

We’re always looking for faculty, postdocs, and students to complement the unique skill sets of our faculty members. If you’re interested in joining us, please reach out to with your CV and interests.
