What is Systems Medicine?

Systems medicine is an emerging biomedical field that relies on systems biology approaches and tools in solving biomedical problems. In medicine, complex computational tools will become essential for deriving personalized assessments of disease risk and management including individualized diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment options. This change, involving the use and analysis of enormous quantities and variety of data, will require a new type of physician and a new type of biomedical scientist – one with a grasp of modern computational sciences, “-omic” technologies, and a systems approach to medicine.
