The graduate Biostatistics Program from Georgetown University helps students to first build a solid knowledge in biostatistics and then to choose a specialty in either epidemiology or bioinformatics. The program aims to train individuals who will bring their biostatistical expertise to these related fields and who will be able collaborate on a wide range of biomedical projects.


This Biostatistics Program from Georgetown University will provide integrated training in computational, quantitative and biomedical sciences to support health-related research performed in academia, government and industry.

The Program

Students will not only acquire the quantitative and computational tools that underpin epidemiology and bioinformatics, but they will also gain substantive exposure to applications of these tools to biological and health sciences.

Today's life-science research demands a wider synthesis of skills from multiple disciplines than ever before. To address this need, it is essential to train individuals who focus on data-analysis and informatics tools and exploit databases for broad-based biomedical information.
