Summer 2012 Opportunities for Undergraduate Students for Training in Biostatistics
The program flyer explains that SIBS is offered at eight sites: Boston University, Emory University, University of Iowa, North Carolina State University-Duke Clinical Research Institute, University of Pittsburgh, University of South Florida, Washington University in St. Louis, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Further details are given at the individual websites listed on the flyer.
SIBS introduces quantitatively oriented participants to Biostatistics. Students learn about the applications of statistical methods to biomedical research through coursework and hands-on experience working with real data collected in major clinical studies. Each of the program sites has its own unique features, but they all have a well-conceived, balanced agenda and an outstanding staff of dedicated investigators and professors. No specific training in statistics is required as a prerequisite.
Participants receive college credit that can transfer back to their home institutions. All costs are covered including tuition, housing, and all meals. Students may apply to more than one program, but should accept only one.
