Clinical Biostatistics Course

Professionals of statistics play a critical role in planning and conducting clinical trials in drug development, and work alongside medical and pharmaceutical experts. Biostatisticians are experts of clinical trial methodology, who have discipline of statistics.

This course is a two-year, postgraduate, and professional degree program, which will equip students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required to function as biostatisticians. Upon completion, students will receive a Master of Public Health (MPH)* degree. We welcome students interested in data science and statistics, regardless of whether they have a health science background.

*The internationally recognized MPH degree signifies that the holder has successfully completed a one- or two-year professional program at a graduate school of public health.

Holders of a Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree in Physical Science, Engineering, Economics, or Related Scientific Disciplines

A background in the health sciences is certainly not a requirement for this course. If you have an interest in data science and statistics, we welcome your application. Why don’t you develop your potential and advance your career in the arena of health care sciences?

Holders of a Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree in Medical or Life Sciences

A background in the medical or life sciences gives biostatisticians a strong advantage engaged in clinical research. We invite you to learn clinical biostatistics and add it to your repertoire.
