Background competency in biostatistics and clinical care are required for incoming students. For those that do not meet the prerequisite, we offer the following boot camp courses:
Introduction to Biostatistics prerequisite course: This is an intensive course designed for students who have little to no background in biostatistics. It is also intended to be a refresher course for those who may have some statistical background and may or may not have recently been engaged in statistics related work or activities. If a student previously took statistic courses or they use statistics in their everyday work, they may fulfill the prerequisite and will not need to take this boot camp. The faculty director makes the final decision based on the information provided.
Overview of Clinical Care Systems prerequisite course: This course provides non-clinicians with the knowledge of how clinical settings work. This boot camp is recommended for students that are not clinicians.
