Biostatistics is the science of analyzing and interpreting biomedical data. As a discipline it is driven by a strong interaction between problems from biomedical research and rigorous mathematical analysis. Complex scientific challenges require the development of new and appropriate statistical methods. Currently such challenges emerge, for example, in environmental and infectious disease epidemiology, personalized and evidence-based medicine and molecular life sciences, especially genomics, proteomics, epigenomics.

The Master Program in Biostatistics of the Univeristy of Zurich is specialized master program, hence it is a useful and direct continuation of a bachelor degree in all fields that include quantitative aspects, e.g. mathematics, physics, biology, computer science etc. Students interested and talented in logical reasoning, quantitative analysis, interdisciplinary science and research in the life sciences in general are suitable candidates for the program.

The program is based on the cooperation between the Institute of Mathematics in the Faculty of Science and the Division of Biostatistics of the Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine in the Faculty of Medicine. This broad basis allows to offer an education which provides graduates besides a classical training in biostatistics with a vast perspective on statistical approaches and challenges in the life sciences. It is the only - to date - specialized program for the training of biostatisticians in Switzerland. The entire program is taught in English.

Applications are expected by September 15 of the previous year for the spring semester and by February 15 of the same year for the fall semester. Single documents that are not available before the application deadline can be filed subsequently. It is recommended to start the program in the fall semester. See the website for necessary documents.

Biostatistics, a concentration within the Professional Science major, leading to a Master of Science, provides training in statistical methods that can be applied to biomedical and health-related fields. These methods involve using mathematics to solve real-world problems that influence health. Statistical areas of study include clinical trials, experimental design, categorical and longitudinal data analysis, and survival analysis. The M.S. in Professional Science combines the business management skills commonly found in the traditional M.B.A.-type program with advanced learning in specific science fields. The program consists of 21 hours of concentration-specific courses and 15 core hours in pre-defined business courses. Students complete a 250-hour internship, typically just before or during their final semester, instead of a thesis and comprehensive exams.

The Master of Science (M.S.) with a major in Professional Science includes a business core with specific concentrations in Actuarial Sciences, Biostatistics, Biotechnology, Engineering Management, Geosciences, and Health Care Informatics.

The two-year master’s degree in the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) was initially started with support by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The interdisciplinary program is a partnership of the College of Basic and Applied Sciences, College of Behavioral and Health Sciences, College of Liberal Arts, and the Jennings A. Jones College of Business.

Career

Reports from the Department of Labor indicate an increasing demand for individuals with master's level training with a specialty in science. MTSU is home to the only Master of Science in Professional Science program in Tennessee and prepares "business savvy scientists" for the 21st century job market. Biostatistics master’s graduates will ideally work as biostatisticians in professional settings including health care agencies; governmental agencies such as the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Environmental Protection Agency; and the pharmaceutical industry.

What is Epidemiology?

Epidemiology is the science that underpins a large area of medical research and public health. It describes the burden of disease at the population level and seeks to identify causes of disease which can help to inform effective interventions and high quality treatment strategies. Postgraduates from this course will have a wide range of career options, and are in demand in universities, government, national health services, non-government organisations and industry.

What is Biostatistics?

Biostatistics is the science of collecting, analysing, presenting and drawing inferences from data for research in medicine and health. Context is vitally important as methods developed in one area of statistics can be misleading when unthinkingly applied elsewhere. For example, basic regression assumes independence whereas data on patients is rarely independent as they share common treatment pathways within e.g. hospitals. Postgraduates from this course will learn a wide range of contemporary statistical methods and, most importantly, when and where they should be applied.

What will this course teach me?

Training the next generation of scientists...

This course will train you to be a researcher with excellent analysis skills. The course culminates in a research project tailored to your chosen theme, which you will write up for publication in a journal. The project will be conducted under the supervision of leading researchers in their field.

Designed to fit an area of need, you will be attractive to future employers, whether in academic research or industry.

The curriculum

The course aims to train scientists to pursue careers in epidemiology, biostatistics, public health and health-services research. Students all undertake the five Common Core modules before choosing a Specialist Theme to focus on. Three further modules are then completed within the chosen Specialist Theme before moving on to the Research Project.

Common Core

This new MSc offers a common core of modules and three specialist themes (of which you choose one). The specialist themes are:

Statistical Epidemiology;
Non-communicable Disease Epidemiology and
Applied Population Health.

Modules

The taught modules for this MSc come to 120 credits in total, comprising of 75 credits of 'Common Core' modules plus an additional 45 credits from optional modules, which you will tailor to suit your chosen specialism. You will then go on to complete a 60 credit Research Project.

Your five Common Core 15 credit modules will be:

Core Epidemiology,
Introduction to Modelling,
Statistical Inference,
Advanced Epidemiology and
Professional Spine.

You will then choose a Specialist Theme and will undertake four 15 credit modules within that specialism.

Professional Spine

This is an innovative aspect of the course; it is designed to provide you with the skills and experience necessary to work effectively in research. The spine runs throughout the second semester and consists of:

◾Working in epidemiology and public health
◾Ethics
◾Critical appraisal skills for evidence review and synthesis
◾Academic writing for publication
◾Presentation skills
◾Consultancy skills
◾Management and Leadership

Research project

The course culminates in your research project, which you will start to think about in the first semester. Working in collaboration with the teaching team you will be choosing, designing, conducting and writing your research project, which you will tailor to suit your chosen specialism. You can either choose from a range of projects designed by the supervisors, or you can design one yourself.
The final outcome will be to write up a paper, suitable for publication in a journal. We will encourage you to submit the article, using our experience and reputation to augment this process.

What is Comparative Effectiveness Research?

Clinical research has generated tremendous knowledge on diagnosis and treatment. However, it does not provide sufficient information to determine what treatment works best, for whom, and under which conditions. Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) addresses these issues by identifying the most effective interventions for specific patient groups. Comparative Effectiveness Research is a growing area of cutting-edge research that is elevated at the level of national initiative in the USA. Comparative Effectiveness Research is “the generation and synthesis of evidence that compares the benefits and harms of alternative methods to prevent, diagnose, treat, and monitor a clinical condition or to improve the delivery of care”.

An innovative approach

This is a unique opportunity for students to get a specialised Master in Comparative Effectiveness Research, a first of its kind in Europe, offered by top-level professors coming from Amsterdam University, Danube University, the University of Bern, Oxford University, Paris Descartes University, Paris Diderot University, Queen’s University Belfast, the University of Manchester, and York University. This new Master of Science is delivered in English and aims at international students who want to acquire interdisciplinary skills to evolve in the field of Comparative Effectiveness Research. The programme is limited to 30 students, a small group size that will allow professors to use highly interactive and innovative teaching methods including work in small groups. The goal of the programme is to acquire strong skills in methods, epidemiology, and biostatistics.

Career prospects

The following career paths could be pursued after the completion of the current Master’s programme: continuation into a PhD degree; joining research agencies (R&D), NGOs, think-tanks, government or international agencies working on health issues and many other professional opportunities.

The structure of the programme

The offered Master of Science in Comparative Effectiveness Research is a second-year course that is a part of a two-year Master in Public Health programme. This Master’s programme comprises 10 modules, which are delivered through a range of interactive learning strategies. The programme includes the latest methods and advances in the field of CER, epidemiology and biostatistics. Courses will include applied, hands-on sessions allowing the use of various epidemiological methods, statistical methods, analysis of various types of data and other. This research Master programme will start in October and finish in July. Upon the completion of formalised courses, the students will have to complete a 5-month internship. The awarding of the Master’s degree will depend on successful completion of the formalised courses and the thesis defence.

In addition to the international teaching settings the students will benefit from the vast professional network maintained by faculty members. In particular, the non-academic networks include the Cochrane Collaboration, the EQUATOR Network, the CONSORT Network, INSERM, and others. This Masters programme strives to strengthen via the internship the connection and the mutualisation of the research discoveries between the academic and non-academic partners. The latter encourages the acquisition of the transferable skills needed to succeed in a 21-century research setting and for the smooth transition to the professional world.
