M.S. in Biostatistics, Clinical Research and Biostatistics Concentration students will complete at least 34 semester credit hours. This includes 17 credits hours of core course work, 12 credit hours of elective courses and at least five credit hours of directed independent research.
Students must also complete a research project, culminating in an academic manuscript submitted for publication. A research advisory committee must be formed to direct the student’s research project. The committee should consist of two clinicians familiar with the student’s area of research and a faculty member of the Department of Biostatistics. The student should be primarily responsible for the conceptualization, design, conduct, analysis and interpretation of the research project.
