The PhD in Public Health with a concentration in Biostatistics builds on the classic public health biostatistics skill and knowledge base and takes advantage of special knowledge of its faculty in the areas of genetics, bioinformatics and big data science. Students have the opportunity to learn and apply statistical genetics in the context of complex disease study, high-throughput computing used in “big data” science and Applications in evidence-based patient-centered outcome studies. Courses include topics and material such as interpretation of personalized and evidence-based medicine in the context of public health; basic understanding of genetics and epigenetic; and general approaches and concepts.

The student, in consultation with the major professor, must create a plan of study and submit to the Biostatistics Faculty by the end of the first year. Minimum course requirements for all work requires approximately two to three full years of study.
