The Graduate Certificate in Biostatistics is a 15-credit hour graduate certificate that allows students to develop foundational skills in the design and analysis of biomedical studies. These skills are necessary for conducting quantitative research in public health and medicine, and they are attractive to future employers.
A graduate certificate is not a degree program, but it does provide formal recognition of the mastery of foundational biostatistics. The certificate is designed for students studying in degree programs outside the Department of Biostatistics or for professionals seeking continuing education.
Upon successful completion of the Graduate Certificate in Biostatistics, students will be able to:
Identify and apply appropriate statistical methods for analyzing public health and biomedical data
Summarize statistical designs, including design issues and power calculations, and their applications in solving public health and biomedical problems
Interpret and convey statistical findings
Use technology to perform statistical procedures
