Coffee Talk: Training Professionals to Lead Healthcare’s Evolution with Biomedical Informatics

21 minutes

For this special Coffee Talk I invited two leaders from one of our sponsors to share some of their insights and expertise on one of the most important areas of healthcare right now, Biomedical Informatics. Organizing, analyzing, and utilizing vast amounts of information for translational research to connect discovery with clinical care is one of the biggest challenges facing the current generation of data scientists, which is particularly being highlighted during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The University of Chicago Master of Science in Biomedical Informatics is an amazing program that goes deep in informatics methodology. It also teaches things like effective communication skills and how to manage complex Biomedical Informatics projects, as well as entrepreneurial and innovation skills across the various courses.

With me in our virtual studio is Dr. Sam Volchenboum and Dr. Cheng-Kai Kao to tell us more about the ways they’re training and preparing the leaders we need for the healthcare of today and tomorrow. They explain more about the program itself, the kinds of professionals who enroll, and how they go about preparing students for the roles they will have in healthcare.

Be sure to check out the full transcript on our website.
