BMTRY 776 Public Health Seminar


This course is a required course for Biostatistics and Epidemiology Ph.D. and MS students in the department, to be completed in the fall and spring semesters of the student’s first year in the program. Students attend the DPHS-sponsored seminars every other Monday throughout the semester to gain exposure to contemporary research topics in biostatistics and epidemiology. Seminar speakers are invited guests to the department and represent a diversity of research topics that are complimentary to the research interest of DPHS faculty. On alternating Mondays, the department sponsors its own Brown Bag seminar series featuring research presentations by DPHS faculty and advanced students actively engaged in mentored projects. This valuable exposure helps first-year students identify potential mentors and projects for summer research hours, as well as possible dissertation advisers and research topics.
