The PhD in Biostatistics program at the IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health combines the statistical theory and modeling strengths of IUPUI’s Department of Mathematical Sciences with the exceptional biostatistical methods research, health sciences applications, and public health experience of our own department of Biostatistics. Students benefit from a low student/faculty ratio that promotes close interaction with faculty and targeted guidance of research.
Designed for individuals with strong quantitative and analytical skills and a strong interest in biological, medical and/or health-related sciences, the 90-credit program can be completed on either a full-time or part-time basis. Students will be well prepared to contribute to research, collaboration, and consulting across a broad spectrum of health and life science problems. The program emphasizes the theory and concepts underlying statistical methods, the interpretation of results from experimental, as well as observational studies, and the practical realities of health-related studies and their analysis.
