Curriculum Development for BioMedical Informatics

Curriculum Development for BioMedical Informatics Reflecting Change Oriented Knowledge Structure.

This project is supported by the Korea Research Foundation Grant funded by the Korean Government, KRF-2008-D00035. 

The efforts to define and characterize the biomedical informatics were reported in several studies. The discipline however, is highly multidisciplinary, and continuous influx of new knowledge and ever-evolving technologies into this field makes the definition results more or less outmoded. As such, defining and scoping the biomedical informatics prerequires understanding the nature of biomedical informatics.

Our objective is to explore the intellectual structure of biomedical informatics to better understand the nature of the field and more appropriate curriculum development.
