This program is designed to prepare a biostatistician with in-depth statistical and analytic skills. The program requires a solid background in the methodological aspects of statistics, and in statistical thinking as applied to medicine, as well as, a solid grounding in epidemiological methods and in certain medical disciplines. This program encourages applicants who have undergraduate degrees in allied health, public health, biological sciences, or other related fields to apply.
Some students may be admitted to the program without a strong quantitative background (e.g., if they have a strong biological background and clear evidence of interest and quantitative reasoning ability), and will be expected to complete PM510 prior to enrolling in the program.
