Medical Informatics



Medical Informatics specialization of the study programme Informatics and Its Specializations is designed for those who want to learn how to create software that can improve the lifestyle of patients suffering from various diseases or even save human lives, not only standard software, such as accounting applications. Graduates of this specialisation will gain in-depth knowledge and practical skills covering all essential computer science topics, e.g., artificial intelligence and machine learning, digital image processing and visualisation, so that they can participate in the analysis and processing of biomedical data.
You can find more detailed information on the Department of Computer Science website (only in Czech). Further information and instructions for applying for the study are provided on the faculty website in the admission procedure section.

What will I learn

During your studies, you will acquire theoretical knowledge and practical skills in almost all areas of the scientific field of medical (or biomedical) informatics, namely in databases in healthcare, clinical decision support systems, medical signal processing, medical image processing, and neuroinformatics. You will be able to:
- design and implement a software solution requiring in-depth knowledge of biosignal (e.g. EEG or ECG) or digital image (medical images) processing, or statistical analysis and processing of structured data (e.g. laboratory results) and associated metadata,
- process biomedical data efficiently and extract knowledge from it, including using modern machine learning methods, advanced algorithmic approaches and parallel processing tools,
- design visualization of large-scale data, ensuring minimization of potential misinterpretation,
- implement and verify a simple model of a physiological system,
- and interact effectively with doctors and biomedical professionals, i.e. users, software products, experimenters, authors and co-authors of analyses, as well as mathematicians and engineers, i.e. creators of modelling approaches.


The primary employment of graduates is in companies and organizations specialized in developing or using biomedical software products, especially at positions: software developer, data analyst / specialist, researcher.
