Biomedical Visualization

The Department of Biomedical and Health Information Sciences (BHIS) offers a graduate program leading to the Master of Science (MS) in Biomedical Visualization. Biomedical Visualization is a multidisciplinary field that draws upon and integrates subject matter from a variety of disciplines (e.g. anatomy, biochemistry, genetics, molecular and cell biology, neuroscience, physiology, and surgery, as well as art, graphic design, animation, and computer science). The master’s degree program in Biomedical Visualization is a terminal degree, and is most appropriate for students who wish to apply their knowledge through practice in academic, healthcare, or industry settings. Graduates from the program are grounded in visual communication problem solving while embracing innovation in digital media technology to translate research and discovery, as well as visually educate health care providers, physicians, and patients.
