Epidemiology and Biostatistics

Milken Institute School of Public Health Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics integrates diverse educational programs with a rapidly growing research portfolio. Graduate students have the opportunity to study and participate in faculty research projects in a variety of academic disciplines including infectious disease, cancer, nutritional and disaster epidemiology, applied biostatistical methods and public health laboratory science. In their Practicum, students work closely with scientists at local health departments, the NIH and other federal agencies, academic institutions, and international health organizations. By exploring the core quantitative sciences of public health and taking advantage of opportunities to “learn by doing,” students are prepared to become the next generation of public health leaders and practitioners.
