The Doctoral Degree (PhD) with a Major in Biostatistics prepares individuals to understand the mathematical and theoretical basis of statistical methodology; collaborate on the design of research studies in the health sciences; provide advice on the proper collection, entry, storage, retrieval, and manipulation of data; and take primary responsibility for the analysis, interpretation and dissemination of data in a research study using state-of-the-art statistical methods and software.
PhD students are also prepared to carry out original methodological research in statistics and apply the resulting methodology to health-related research problems.
Mathematics prerequisites at a minimum include three semesters of undergraduate level calculus (including multivariable calculus) and a semester of undergraduate level linear or matrix algebra.
"We produce next-generation biostatistics graduates with solid foundations in both
theory and application to analyze and interpret complex data from biomedical research
and other fields. Biostatistics is one of the fastest-growing filed in this decade.
Demands for biostatisticians are expected to grow in the coming years in different
areas ranging from biomedicine, environmental science, Social science. We look forward
to welcoming you to our growing PhD program in Biostatistics!"
