About this Program
Biostatisticians play an essential role in converting raw biomedical data into applied knowledge. They work at the intersection of public health and biomedical research to design studies, shape government policy, train researchers and develop new methods for analyzing biological data.
In this three-course certificate program, you’ll learn how to employ statistical concepts to answer important scientific questions. Using either R or Stata software, we’ll apply different techniques for analyzing data sets from scientific and medical research. Develop the ability to process and interpret the results of statistical analyses common in biomedical research.
Scientists and researchers who use biostatistics in their work.
