The application for this program opens August 1, 2021.
The Master of Science degree with a Major in Biostatistics provides an intensive exposure to the wide range of ideas, methodologies, and techniques needed to perform as a statistician who designs data collection from experiments, observational studies, and clinical trials and analyzes and reports these data, extracting information stored in various forms. The application focus is on medicine, dentistry, nursing, allied health science, laboratory science, and other biological disciplines.
In training students to support collaborative research in the biomedical sciences, the Master of Science program builds on, and contributes to, the Medical College of Georgia's (MCG) growing reputation as a premier health sciences university. Its focus on statistics applied to health professions distinguishes it from most graduate statistics programs and prepares its graduates for rewarding careers in this increasingly important field.
"We train our Master’s students to use applied statistical methods to support collaborative
research and perform consulting projects in the biomedical and health sciences. All
of our Master’s students work closely with their advisors in their projects! We look
forward to welcoming you to our growing MS program in Biostatistics!"
