MASTER OF SCIENCE IN BIOSTATISTICS AND EPIDEMIOLOGY (MSBE)

The Program is offered at Department of Research, Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS). This program will prepare students to apply epidemiological and statistical principles to quantitative analysis of health care issues. It would be aimed to train the health scientist and health professionals in different organizations such as research hospitals, public health organizations, pharmaceutical companies and other medical and health services research agencies where increasingly complex health-care data are expected to be analyzed and interpreted.

Combining these two disciplines (Biostatistics and Epidemiology) into one degree program will offer the students the benefits of understanding the basis theoretical principles behind epidemiology, so that they can better understand and apply these statistical principles to new and emerging biological and health related fields, challenges and threads.

The applications of this field of knowledge are enormous. Biostatistics and Epidemiologists are helping health scientists better understand the impact of chronic illnesses such as artery diseases, cancers, hepatitis and diabetes on our population and help detect new and emerging health threads. The program is tailored to understand in-depth knowledge of epidemiology, biostatistics and its application in analyzing the major public health issues in Pakistan and developing countries.
