Graduate Certificate in Biostatistics is designed for the graduate students in statistics but also for qualifying graduate students that are not statistics majors as well as working professionals who want to enhance their background in health-related data analysis: Physicians, nurses, clinical researchers, health educators and administrators.
Applicants are expected to have completed an introductory course in statistics, and be enrolled as graduate students at WMU.
The program requires 18 credit hours (six courses).
For graduate students in other programs at WMU, up to nine hours of approved quantitative graduate research courses taken from the student’s own department can substitute courses listed as electives. These courses would count, as appropriate, for their graduate degree.
