BIOINFORMATICS
GRAduATe PROGRAM
Master of Science Degree • Georgetown University School of Medicine, Washington, DC
APPLICATIONS
Applicants must be in the last semester of
undergraduate study or hold a bachelor’s
degree. There is no GRe requirement.
The program has a rolling admissions policy;
applications should be submitted as early as
possible.

Classes are taught at the Medical Center
and at the adjacent Protein Information
Resource (PIR) by full-time faculty. Guest
lecturers and seminar speakers are invited
from institutions such as the National
Center for Biotechnology Information
(NCBI) and the the J. Craig Venter Institute.

Internships on campus, in government
agencies, non-profit organizations and the
biotechnology industry.

Flexible program suitable for students
of different backgrounds including
those with degrees in the life sciences,
physical sciences, computer science or
mathematics.

The M.S. degree can be completed in either
two or three semesters.

Bioinformatics is fundamental to the modern day
study of biology and essential to 21st century
biomedical research. With the data explosion
of “omics” biotechnologies and the promise of
systems biology and personal genomics, there is
high demand for bioinformatics professionals with
computing and bioscience skills in both academia
and industry. Graduates may also pursue further
study towards a Ph.d., M.d., MBA or law degree.
