I chose to pursue a Master of Professional Science in Biomedical and Health Informatics because I believe healthcare is on the cusp of experiencing a revolution in data analytics.  This degree program will give me the opportunity to become part of the next generation of innovative medical leaders who understand both the language of “big data” and medicine.  A more responsive and personalized healthcare system is right around the corner, and I want to be an integral part of it.
