About this course

Biostatistics(#16) is the specialised application of statistics (involving study design, data collection, data analysis and interpretation) to the field of health.

This program is offered in web-based mode only.

Careers:

There is an on-going shortage of skilled biostatisticians in Australia and around the world. Graduates in biostatistics have substantial opportunities in the public health sector, medical research and the pharmaceutical industry. This program aims to fill the gap between programs in public health and epidemiology (which train users of biostatistical methods, not professional biostatisticians) and general statistics programs (which do not cater for the diverse and specialised needs in health research).

While this degree may be accredited by an official industry accreditation body in Australia, completion of the degree may not result in graduates receiving automatic accreditation. Please contact the relevant registration body for details of any conditions for accreditation.
