In an effort to train the next generation of researchers and health care professionals, the Department of Health Outcomes & Biomedical Informatics draws from the multi-disciplinary strengths of its faculty, which includes health services researchers, epidemiologists, prevention scientists, economists, medical anthropologists, biostatisticians, psychologists and medical sociologists to teach students how to develop and evaluate health interventions, treatments, prevention practices and policies and determine what works on a large-scale level and why.
HOBI graduate students come from a variety of undergraduate backgrounds, including psychology, biostatistics and computer science, and bring with them a range of research experience levels. They are active in student organizations and activities on campus.
