The highly collaborative faculty in Biostatistics and Medical Informatics offer training to undergraduate, graduate and other students through a variety of flexible mechanisms aimed at attracting the best and brightest students into our innovative fields of quantitative methodology for biomedical investigation, and at training biomedical scientists in the optimal application of our methods to their chosen field of study.

For undergraduates, our summer programs offer the opportunity to gain a foundation in biostatistics or biomedical informatics and to explore research in these areas. Other undergraduates pursue honors work or research rotations with our faculty, either informally or as part of their major.

For graduate students and professionals in areas of biomedical science ranging from the molecular to the clinical and to the population levels, we offer or participate in certificate programs in bioinformatics and in clinical investigation.

For students wishing to pursue Master's or PhD level graduate work in quantitative methodologies in biomedical science, opportunities to train with our faculty are available primarily through the graduate programs in Statistics and in Computer Sciences, but also through graduate programs in Clinical Investigation, in Genetics, in Population Health Sciences, among others. In addition, we now have a MS degree program in Biomedical Informatics, with plans to matriculate our first students in Fall, 2015.
