Our Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering has teamed up with UNC-Chapel Hill departments of Psychology and Neuroscience to announce the launch of a graduate certificate in Biomedical Imaging Science. Biomedical imaging is a critical area of research with far-reaching scientific and clinical translational opportunities in several areas, including cancer; developmental science; genetics; pharmacology; neuroscience; and biomedical informatics. The new certificate program combines didactic coursework with symposia and workshops at UNC’s Biomedical Research Imaging Center (BRIC), as well as practicum placement for research training in an on-campus research lab. Leveraging both the faculty expertise and technological resources of the UNC Biomedical Research Imaging Center, the program will provide students the opportunity to learn broadly about the biomedical imaging sciences while also selecting a specific imaging modality for more specific training.
The Biomedical Imaging Science Certificate requires four three-credit courses and a three-credit practicum, and is in addition to the student’s Departmental or Program degrees. Simultaneous enrollment in a UNC graduate program is required.
