Informatics Education & Training

Graduate Programs in Bioinformatics

The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) and the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) offer a joint graduate program in bioinformatics for both master’s and doctorate degrees. The collaborative program is built on the strengths of both universities, namely information and computer science, biology, chemistry, mathematics and statistics at UALR and biomedical research and biostatistics at UAMS.

Coming Soon!

Pending approval by the Arkansas Department of Higher Education, UAMS will offer certificates, master’s degrees and doctorates in four tracks of biomedical informatics beginning in fall 2017: Translational Bioinformatics, Imaging Informatics, Clinical Informatics, and Clinical Research Informatics.

Information Quality Courses

In collaboration with UALR, the Translational Research Institute’s (TRI) Comprehensive Informatics Resource Center (CIRC), a partnership with the Department of Biomedical Informatics at UAMS, periodically offers introductory courses in information quality to the UAMS campus. Courses are designed to give participants knowledge and skills to apply state-of-the-art data quality techniques to research data.

Clinical Informatics Board Prep Course

This is a multi-module lecture series with new modules available each week. This Board prep provides exposure to topics on the clinical informatics subspeciality board examination. Lectures highlight relevant informatics and information science principles and methodology. Learn more.

Biomedical Informatics Research & Application Seminar Series

This seminar series provides exposure to current research and application in biomedical informatics. Topics include ongoing research, research results, translation of findings into practice, and reflect the breadth of ongoing work across biomedical informatics as a discipline. This weekly seminar is given by local and visiting researchers and practitioners in the discipline and include CME credit. Seminar speakers highlight relevant informatics and information science principles and methodology. TRI’s video library houses recordings of the seminars, which are sponsored by the Department of Biomedical Informatics and TRI.
