Coursework provides grounding in relevant research methods and theoretical approaches, and culminates in a major paper analyzing existing literature and/or data to generate new insights. Health Services and Systems Research students at Boston University also are required to develop advanced skills in either qualitative or quantitative research methods. Proficiency in communicating research findings is also emphasized, as is training in the essentials of project management.
Students entering the program should have completed two years of full-time work experience in the health care field (or be in an approved dual degree program) and have completed a graduate-level course in biostatistics. Applications from students with no formal graduate coursework in biostatistics will be considered and students provisionally accepted will be expected to complete this requirement prior to starting the program.
