Summer 2018 Opportunities for Undergraduate Students to learn about Biostatistics
Six Summer Institutes in Biostatistics (SIBS) are scheduled for the summer of 2018. SIBS are open to all US undergraduate and beginning graduate students (US citizens or permanent residents) and are sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and the National Center for Research Resources. The programs have been very successful, but space is limited!
The program flyer explains that SIBS is offered at six sites: Boston University, Emory University, University of Colorado Denver, University of Iowa, University of Minnesota, and North Carolina State University-Duke Clinical Research Institute. 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.
