Biostatistics (n.) :

  1. The application of statistics to biology, specifically to health care research
  2. A collaborative master’s degree program at Queen’s University, administered jointly by the Community Health & Epidemiology and Mathematics & Statistics departments

The Department of Public Health Sciences and Department of Mathematics and Statistics jointly offer collaborative M.Sc program in biostatistics specialization. The two departments offer strong graduate programs that include a broad range of courses in statistics, biostatistics, epidemiology, and health services research, and strong graduate programs.  By combining these resources, students in the collaborative program will have unique opportunities to develop the analytic skills and practical experience needed to interact with practitioners and to work on current research projects in a variety of health areas.

“It’s not just about learning statistical formulas. You have to learn how to apply them, which requires a lot of training.”
