Population Health Sciences offers a novel, interdisciplinary approach to care delivery. The biostatistics track of our innovative 4-year curriculum is complemented by epidemiology, biomedical informatics, and health economics.
Students will experience advanced methods of study design and analysis. Key focus areas include modern casual inference, methods for longitudinal and multilevel health data analysis, survival analysis, and secondary data sets. Graduates will be equipped with the methodological and communications skills to lead independent and team-based collaborative research.
Clinical & Translational Epidemiology
Clinical and translational epidemiologists work with lab scientists to develop optimal patient treatments based on cellular and molecular research findings.
The clinical & translational epidemiology track of our innovative 4-year curriculum reflects the translational process from cells to symptoms. A strong foundation of epidemiology complemented by coursework in biostatistics and biomedical informatics will prepare graduates with a unique blend of skills positioning them for success in transforming health care delivery.
Health Systems Research
PhDs in Population Health Sciences foster data-driven health care delivery while working in academic, government, policy, research, and health system settings.
The 4-year curriculum mirrors the novel interdisciplinary nature of population health sciences.
The PhD program complements and interfaces with existing graduate programs in public health, biomedical informatics, medicine, pharmacotherapy, mathematics, economics, political science, computing, nursing, statistics, and more.
