The Master of Science in Biostatistics degree is designed to provide graduate level training in the application and theory of biostatistics. The program is primarily aimed at those wishing to pursue careers as intermediate level biostatisticians or apply for doctoral programs in Biostatistics. The program is also appropriate for individuals who have earned a Graduate Certificate in Biostatistics and wish to pursue further training.
Target audiences for this program include individuals who desire careers as collaborative biostatisticians in the basic, clinical, translational or population sciences. The program will also be appropriate for some clinical and translational researchers (e.g. K awardees or postdoctoral trainees), students in other Oregon graduate programs, as well as working professionals throughout the state and region (e.g. public health practitioners, laboratory scientists, data managers, database programmers, other research professionals).
All faculty members in the Department’s Division of Biostatistics are actively involved with externally funded projects. Students will have opportunities to work with real world applications under the supervision of faculty.
