The Advanced Graduate Certificate program has been designed to provide students with the basic grounding in Biomedical Informatics and the flexibility to design a curriculum that best augments their current training. A minimum of 15 credits is required for the Advanced Graduate Certificate.
- 15 approved graduate credits including BMI 501, BMI 502 and/or BMI 503. As well as one from the following list corresponding to the track specialization: BMI 511 Translational Bioinformatics, BMI 512 Clinical Informatics or BMI 513 Imaging Informatics.
- All courses taken outside the Program for application to the graduate degree requirements are subject to prior approval of the student’s advisor and the BMI Graduate Program Director.
- Students must complete all the required courses from at least one of the Biomedical Informatics program tracks (see AGC Course Table, below).
A maximum of 6 graduate credits may be transferred from other programs toward the Advanced Graduate Certificate. These may include up to 3 credits from other institutions. The maximum also includes any credits received from taking Biomedical Informatics courses while having non-degree status at Stony Brook as an SPD or GSP student. Credits used to obtain any prior degrees are not eligible for transfer. All requests for transfer of credits require the prior approval of the BMI Graduate Program Director.
Full-time students must complete all Advanced Graduate Certificate requirements within two years.
Part-time students must complete all Advanced Graduate Certificate requirements within four years.
