Texas is expected to need at least an additional 10,000 HIT workers for the state’s $103.6 billion health care industry by 2013.– Dr. Susan Fenton (PURE-HIT Project Director)
The colleagues and faculty from SBMI are what I like most! So many students are in the professional field of clinical informatics and have war stories to share about EHR deployments and 'Meaningful Use.' The faculty have won several national awards and generate great discussion in their classes. My advisors have helped springboard my personal research and guide my graduate education.– John D'Amore (Master's Graduate)
The wealth of knowledge held amongst the faculty is staggering. While the professors may initially seem intimidating, after getting to know them, they only invade your darkest nightmares. SBMI is stellar!– Elizabeth Markowitz (PhD Student)
