An opportunity for those with clinical training to dive into research surrounding topical areas of public health.
The Department of Public Health Sciences at the University of Chicago offers a course of study in the theory, methods, and concepts of biostatistics, epidemiology, and health services research needed to design and carry out clinical and epidemiologic research programs.
The program can be completed in one year of full-time study, or it can be spread over two or more years. Most students in the program are concurrently in a clinical fellowship or training program.
Students in the program acquire skills with basic statistical methods, followed by additional training in the fundamental theory and methods of epidemiology, biostatistics, and health services research. Through choice from a broad range of elective courses, students can specialize in one of the three disciplinary areas.
Designed for individuals who already have doctoral-level expertise in medicine and related clinical disciplines who are seeking professional enhancement in public health studies.
Offered by the University of Chicago’s (opens in new tab) Biological Sciences Division and (opens in new tab) Department of Public Health Sciences.
