Biomedical Informatics is pleased to announce that Dr. Kenneth Kaushansky will kick off day one of the Inaugural Stony Brook Informatics Bootcamp on Friday May 5, 2017 at 8:30 AM. The curriculum is targeted to student, resident, and attending physicians, as well as, nursing students, nurses, and pharmacists. The course is open at no charge to all at Stony Brook Medicine. Click here to register  For course details click here.

Clinical Informatics (CI) is a growing area of medicine, at the intersection of computers and clinical care, where you can make a difference. Anyone directly involved in patient care can have a significant impact on improving that care through Clinical Informatics. Leveraging the strengths of computing to deliver better healthcare is at the core of the specialty. Understanding more about CI can help you understand quality metrics, drive change and better target healthcare to those in most need. By seeing the big picture, though data, you can give each patient the best individual care. While for some Informatics will become a full time job, understanding the basics of the field if part of a central core of knowledge, cutting across all specialties. This bootcamp will introduce you to the field, and let you learn basic steps of how to employ your knowledge to practice.

Today Clinical Informatics is an ACGME recognized medical subspecialty, with it's own subspecialty board exam. Higher degrees in Informatics are also possible. Here at Stony Brook, both masters level and doctoral level degrees are granted though the department of Biomedical Informatics. Curious to learn more? Please join us at the Clinical Informatics Bootcamp. This program will consist of three, day-long sessions, each of which can be attended as a single stand-alone session. The first day is May 5th, 2017 with the subsequent dates to be announced.

The East West Informatics Workshop

Date of Event: 
Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Stony Brook Medicine
The College of Engineering and Applied Sciences

The Department of Biomedical Informatics

The East West Informatics Workshop

“A Forum for Linking Biomedical Informatics Driving Applications to Computer Science, Applied Math and Digital Media Methods, Techniques and Tools”

The purpose of this forum is to highlight opportunities for faculty and graduate students to collaborate on existing biomedical informatics projects (both clinical informatics, imaging and “omics” related projects).  The first part of the workshop will consist of an overview of Stony Brook Biomedical Informatics initiatives followed by five (5) minute summaries (Lighting Talks) of biomedical computing applications and of potentially applicable CS, applied math / digital media areas of research.   The second part of the workshop will consist of breakout sessions to explore potential interdisciplinary research thrusts.   In the medium to longer term, it is expected that interdisciplinary connections will lead to academic collaborations, publications and externally funded research
