We report a qualitative analysis of higher education biomedical informatics (BMI) teachers’ opinions on the needs for BMI workforce and employment opportunities in the Croatian health care system. Needs were perceived as considerable; however this was not coupled with adequate employment opportunities. Barriers were identified to correcting this imbalance, including the failure of the health care system planners to recognise BMI experts as an important part of the workforce and lack of adequate educational opportunities.
