The Department of Biomedical Informatics has a research program that provides opportunities for our students and residents to participate together with faculty in biomedical informatics research and scholarly activities. We offer experiences that enable discovery and promote creativity. We are committed to pursuing inquiry, disseminating knowledge, and fostering critical thinking that encourages lifelong learning.
Our faculty participate in the research with students and residents, provide research mentorship and collaborate with faculty in other departments and programs. Students’ and residents’ projects are presented at WMed’s annual Kalamazoo Community Medical and Health Sciences Research Day, and published in peer-reviewed journals.
