Abstract: Stanford University School of Medicine has offered graduate degrees in medical informatics since 1982. Located approximately 50 kilometers south of San Francisco near the city of Palo Alto, the university offers both MS and PhD degrees, combining research training with formal course requirements in clinical information sciences, bioinformatics, computer science, decision science, basic biomedicine, health economics, and social and ethical issues. Requirements are adapted to the varying backgrounds of trainees. Graduates of the program work in a variety of capacities, although the majority have sought careers in academia or in industrial research settings.
