Your future starts now!
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 train our doctoral students in methodological research for modeling the next generation
of complex data from biomedical research and other disciplines. It is the best time
to be a biostatistician! We look forward to welcoming you to our growing PhD program
Jie Chen, PhD
"My mentors have helped me become a better student. They have been helpful in all
areas of study within the program, and have guided me through everything from mathematical
theory to computer coding.”
