About the Program

PhD Program Deadlines:

December 1 (non-binding early action)
February 15 (general admission)


The Doctor of Philosophy in Biomedical Informatics is a cornerstone for a program of academic excellence in informatics at UC and its affiliate hospitals. Leveraging partnerships between the UC College of Medicine, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, and the UC College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the program provides an in-depth knowledge of key analytical concepts for applications of informatics and biomedical data science, ranging from molecules to individuals and populations. 

Our students come from a variety of backgrounds in areas such as math, biology, computer science, engineering, bioengineering, and statistics, among others.

Qualified PhD students accepted to the program typically receive full tuition support, a nationally competitive stipend and a health insurance plan. The program is committed to provide strong interdisciplinary mentorship and an environment supporting research and career development.  

From genomic to clinical data, from child to adult health care, with a leading pediatric research center and one of the nation’s first medical colleges, we are making a difference in people's lives. You can too.
