The Graduate Certificate in Biostatistics program will provide basic and intermediate graduate level biostatistics training for a diverse range of students in the health sciences. It is primarily aimed at researchers, students in other programs, and working professionals who are interested in becoming more skilled in applied biostatistics methods and theory. Many students have also chosen the graduate certificate program to start learning biostatistics prior to applying to the MS in Biostatistics program.
Candidates should possess an aptitude for mathematics. Thirty credits (18 credits in core courses, 12 in electives) will be required to earn the Certificate in Biostatistics. The program is comprised of formal didactic sessions and hands-on statistical computing. Classroom and laboratory training will include ample contextualized examples, and analysis projects using real life data. Opportunities exist for mentored collaborative health science research experiences involving ongoing projects with our faculty.
For the Grad Certificate in Biostats Course Outline please look at pages 31-33 in the Student Handbook.
