All programs follow the School of Medicine's standard for minimum grade requirements as outlined in the "Grading Policy" below, and include core, selective and elective coursework, a weekly seminar, Grand Rounds, and a capstone (or thesis) project.


  • Students must earn a grade of B minus or higher in DHSI's core courses.
  • At most, two courses with grades less than B– may be counted towards the coursework requirements. No course with grades less than C- may be counted. The overall grade point average of the courses counted towards the coursework requirements must be a 3.00 or higher (B average). At most, two independent study courses can be counted towards the course requirements.
  • Other than independent study courses, no courses with grades of S or Pass/Fail can be counted towards the coursework requirement unless that course is not offered for a letter grade. Be sure to consult your advisor or the program director before registering for a Pass/Fail course. Courses with grades of S or Pass/Fail will not be included in the grade point average calculation.
  • A grade of D or F will result in probation; a second D or F would be cause for being dropped from the program.
  • Probation: Upon being placed on probation the student will receive an email and official letter from the Program Director. An ad hoc subcommittee, comprising at least three members of the Executive Committee (of the Director’s choosing) will be assembled, and a formal meeting with the student scheduled. During the meeting the student will have the opportunity to review the grade with the committee, and to develop consensus on a plan to monitor future progress in the program, including a time line for meeting the program’s expectations. The notification and committee proceedings will become part of the student's permanent record, as will documentation of the students’ ongoing progress. On review of the fellows’ academic progress, the committee will recommend the students continuance or dismissal from the Program.



Courses divide into Core and Electives. This website is a listing of all BIDS approved program courses, selected from the schools below. A link to each school's search URL is provided here for students to find more information on any specific course, if needed. In addition, courses, along with availability and specifics, can also be found at via the SIS general search engine (except courses in the School of Medicine). Note that some course links provided on this website will take you to one of the search pages to allow students to search by course number and some are linked directly to the course and its information. Also note that each school has a 3 digit abbreviation and a 2 digit school code as part of their course number.

All courses listed on this website are 3 credits, unless otherwise stated.

Semester-long courses are denoted as “Q1+Q2” or “Q3+Q4.”

Remember to check for prerequisites and most non-SOM courses require professor approval via email.

SOM grades are posted on SIS.


The most recent catalog for SOM is found here; it is most useful for information on biomedical courses. The MS for Information Systems at the Carey School of Business lists courses in that program (use SIS for details on specific courses). The Department of Computer Science at WSE provides a pdf of the official catalog. A full listing of WSE Computer Science courses can be found at and WSE offers courses for its Entrepreneurship & Management minor (and masters).

  • An SPH 3-credit 2-quarter course "counts" as 6 credits for the HSI program
  • A Homewood (or other semester-based programs) 3-credit semester course "counts" as 4.5 credits for the HSI program (or 2.25 per quarter). A 2-credit semester course "counts" as 3 quarter credits.
