Summary

The course trains students from a variety of academic backgrounds to work as statisticians in various sectors including higher education, research institutions, the pharmaceutical industry, central government and national health services. It provides training in the theory and practice of statistics with special reference to clinical trials, epidemiology and clinical or laboratory research. There is a shortage of well-trained medical statisticians and graduates from this course are in high demand. Graduates typically pursue careers in medical and epidemiological research, the pharmaceutical industry and various governmental institutions. Medical statisticians play a vital role in creating impact in global health and development. Their job involves the design of local, national, and global clinical studies, analysing data and interpreting results to identify the causes of a given disease, as well as measuring performance outcomes of hospitals and other organisations to gauge the health and wellbeing of populations on a large scale.
