The M.Sc. non-Thesis program is designed to expose students to a wide range of topics including statistical methods for:
epidemiology, generalized linear models, survival analysis, longitudinal data, and clinical trials. Skills in data analysis, statistical consulting, communication, and report writing are emphasized.
Students graduate ready to work in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, in government, or in academic medical research.
Biostatistics involves the development and application of statistical methods to scientific research in areas such as medicine, epidemiology, public health, occupational and environmental health, genetics, and ecology.
Biostatisticians play key roles in designing studies—from helping to formulate the questions that can be answered by data collection to the decisions on how best to collect the data—and in analyzing the resulting data.
McGill's biostatistics faculty work in close collaboration with epidemiologists, clinicians, public health specialists, basic scientists, and other health researchers.
They also develop new statistical methods for such data. Students will take courses, and may do research, on topics such as:
|Cost of living||1 person||$6,912|
