Earning a Ph.D. requires extended study and intense mental effort. A PhD is an academic study on which you concentrate for four to six years after obtaining your master’s degree, and that leads, if successful, to a PhD degree, the highest academic degree.

In regards to the study of biological & life sciences, students may focus on one aspect of natural science or study how they work together, such as the environment and human health or biology and geology.

The USA remains the world’s most popular destination for international students. Universities in the US dominate the world rankings and the country also offers a wide variety of exciting study locations. State university systems are partially subsidized by state governments, and may have many campuses spread around the state, with hundreds of thousands of students.

The Ph.D. program will produce biostatisticians who can develop a biostatistical methodology that can be utilized to solve problems in public health and the biomedical sciences. In addition, graduates of the Ph.D. program will be prepared to apply biostatistical and epidemiology methodology for the design and analysis of public health and biomedical research investigations. Finally, graduates of the Ph.D. program will be well suited to function as collaborators or team leaders on research projects in the biomedical and public health sciences. The program requires competency in the theory of statistics and probability, in introductory and advanced biostatistical methods and theory, and in fundamentals of epidemiologic study design. The doctoral dissertation will be the culminating experience in the Ph.D. program. Graduates of the doctoral program will have written a doctoral dissertation that focuses on the development of a new methodology or on the innovative application of biostatistical methods to a health sciences research problem. Graduates of the Ph.D. program will be in a position to: Demonstrate an increased level of knowledge and understanding of current statistical theory, methods, and practices in the health sciences. Develop new statistical methods. Design, manage data, analyze and interpret data from a variety of experimental and observational studies. Communicate research findings, including new statistical methods developed, effectively to various audiences in writing and through oral presentation The goals of the Ph.D. program are to train students in the application of appropriate statistical methods for diverse problems in medicine and public health and to provide a solid theoretical foundation for the development and investigation of new statistical methods. In addition to the formal statistical training, students will have adequate flexibility in choosing statistical and non-statistical electives to tailor their curriculum towards a specific application area such as genetics, epidemiology, or environmental health. -
