Master of Science in Biostatistics (MSIBS)
The role of the statistician is vital in any medical research project. Physicians and scientists rely on trained biostatisticians to serve as key members of their research teams. The demand for trained biostatisticians outpaces the supply, making this an ideal career for people interested in medical research and science. Our program offers 2 pathway options, the traditional Biostatistics pathway and Statistical Genetics.
Master of Science in Genetic Epidemiology (GEMS) – open to post-docs only
The Division of Biostatistics offers an option for those who have completed a doctoral degree (PhD, MD or equivalent) to pursue a post-doctoral master’s degree in Genetic Epidemiology (GEMS).
Certificate in Genetic Epidemiology
The Certificate program is designed to serve research staff and medical employees, medical students, and others who want to learn the fundamentals of Genetic Epidemiology and SAS.
Post-Doctoral Research Training in Genetic Epidemiology
The primary objective of this training program is to produce cutting edge independent scientists and future research leaders in genetic epidemiology.
Programs to Increase Diversity Among Individuals in Health-Related Research (PRIDE)
The primary goal of this training program is to extend basic training in genetic epidemiology and bioinformatics of cardiovascular disease and risk factors, specifically addressing the needs of the URM and individuals with disabilities.
The Biostatistics Seminar Series is a key professional development opportunity.
See Non-Degree Candidates page for more information about taking biostatistics courses without enrolling in a degree or certificate program.
