Biostatistics is the science of learning from data with a focus on health and medicine. With a career in biostatistics you can make a difference, have fun, satisfy your curiosity, and make money. Biostatistics is a fulfilling and rewarding profession. In fact, statistical analysis and data mining were listed among the “hottest skills of 2014” by LinkedIn, and the discipline has been ranked by Fortune magazine as the top graduate degree based on salary, growth and job satisfaction.
Dr. Hayat will provide an overview of the discipline of biostatistics and describe some of the potential benefits of study in the GSU School of Public Health’s graduate program in biostatistics.
