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 12 credit hours (four courses).
For graduate students at WMU, one approved quantitative research course taken by the students from their own department can be substituted in place of one of the courses on this list. This course would count, as appropriate, for their graduate degree.
