Doctor of Philosophy The Doctor of Philosophy is an advanced degree, preparing you for careers such as independent investigators, collaborative biostatisticians, and educators. A PhD in Biostatistics opens many opportunities for work in academia, government, and private industry.
The PhD in biostatistics is an academic degree program for students with a background in mathematics and a strong interest in biology and public health. The program emphasizes statistical theory and methods so that students are prepared to be effective statistical collaborators in interdisciplinary studies; lead the design and execution of studies; and develop biostatistics methodology.
This is a 27 month online master of public health in epidemiology and biostatistics. We train students to study the factors that underlie health and disease in human populations, including the analysis of data to develop and evaluate strategies for disease prevention and control.
Admission Requirements. In addition to the general admission requirements of the VCU Graduate School, applicants for the Ph.D. in biostatistics (including the genomics concentration) must complete the verbal, quantitative and analytical writing sections of the Graduate Record Exam. All applicants are expected to hold at least a B.S. or B.A. degree and have completed courses as specified in.
About. The Biostatistics and Bioinformatics department engages in methodological and collaborative research and directs four educational degree programs: the Clinical Research Training Program (CRTP), the Master of Biostatistics Program, the PhD Program in Biostatistics, and the Master of Management in Clinical Informatics (MMCi).
This is a course for PhD students with advanced knowledge of probability, statistics, and mathematics. The class covers both advanced probability theory and basic theory of stochastic processes to facilitate research of biostatistics and biomedical sciences.
The PhD in Biostatistics is offered by the Department of Biostatistics. The PhD in Biostatistics is founded in theory and application or statistical analysis. The aim is to produce research-oriented scientists who can advance statistical and modeling theory and can interact effectively with scientists in other disciplines to advance knowledge in those fields.
Biostatistics develops and applies statistical designs and analysis methods for biomedical research to turn data into knowledge. With the emergence of big data, biostatistics expertise is in even greater demand than before. Michigan Biostatistics graduate program is one of the best in the world.
