Prospective Student Open House


Welcome to the graduate program in Biostatistics at Vanderbilt University. We have cultivated a friendly and open environment of genuine collaboration and training that offers graduate students numerous opportunities to engage in closely supervised partnerships across disciplines.

The Department of Biostatistics offers both a PhD and MS degree. Our PhD program aspires to train independent, adroit researchers who contribute to the growth of biostatistics and health science disciplines through methodological research and interdisciplinary collaborations. Our MS program strives to produce competent, flexible analysts who are excellent communicators, well trained in modern analysis techniques, and able to engage in routine and non-standard biomedical applications.

Please take a look at our website to learn about our degree programs, program philosophy, courses, and educational resources. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us.
