The Clinical Biostatistics Course is comprised of basic subjects that are taken in common with the two-year MPH course, as well as specialized subjects such as the fundamentals of statistics and biostatistics. Students will also receive practical on-site training and experience at Kyoto University Hospital and National Cerebral and Cardiovascular Center. Basic subjects include Biostatistics, Epidemiology I/II, Occupational Health and Environmental Health Science, Drug Policy and Regulation, and Behavioral Science. Basic Medicine I/II and Introduction to Clinical Medicine are also mandatory for students without medical background.
