Biostatistics is the exciting field that applies statistics to medical and public health research. Biostatisticians work closely with experts from other fields in research teams. Together they seek to answer serious and important questions that affect human health and well being.
The demand for biostatisticians TODAY is greater than ever before, and it is expected to continue to INCREASE in the future.
The Summer Institute in Biostatistics (SIBS), sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), is a 6-week program to give undergraduate students majoring in or with background in the quantitative sciences the opportunity to explore a career in biostatistics.
Our program has been offered every year since the Summer of 2004. Each year the program was a great success, with over 65% of eligible participants going on to graduate school in the field!
We are currently hosting our program (June 10 - July 19, 2019, with an opening dinner on June 9).
Undergraduate students (including students who will have graduated in Spring 2019) and beginning graduate students who are US citizens or US Permanent Residents are eligible (this is a NIH requirement).
Sister programs will also be held; please visit the link below for information on sites and dates.
