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.

The MSc in Epidemiology at Imperial College London offers training in the methodology, design, conduct and interpretation of epidemiological studies on chronic and infectious diseases. The course is based within the School of Public Health.

Epidemiology is the study of the distribution, causes, and possible prevention and control, of diseases in populations.

The MSc in Epidemiology offers training in the methodology, design, conduct and interpretation of epidemiological studies on chronic and infectious diseases. It is particularly suitable for students who wish to acquire skills in epidemiology and biostatistics, and to get involved with research projects.

  • In the first term, all students follow a common core pathway covering epidemiological methods, biostatistics, and infectious and chronic disease epidemiology.
  • Term two modules aim to reflect areas of emerging research as well as providing extended tutoring in core epidemiological and statistical concepts and skills, building upon the knowledge, insight and skills gained in term one.
  • The third term consists of a four-month research project carried out under supervision, possibly in collaboration with other universities and research institutions.

Upon completion of this course, students usually develop an academic career by beginning a PhD, or move on to work for public health organisations, pharmaceutical companies or non-governmental agencies.

Core modules:

INTRODUCTION TO INFECTIOUS DISEASE MODELLING

This module provides an overview of infectious disease modelling and develops skills in designing and analysing infectious disease models for public health policy. Students will be taught how to represent the characteristics of an infectious disease using a mathematical model, how to simulate that model using a computer, and how to analyse that model. Students will also learn how models have been applied in public health policy, and how models are designed to address a research question. Module leader: Dr Nim Pathy.

PRINCIPLES AND METHODS OF EPIDEMIOLOGY

This module ensures students will be familiar with the core concepts of epidemiology and acquire the skills necessary to describe, analyse, interpret and appraise epidemiological studies. Further modules and projects require such knowledge, and a good grasp of these basics is thus essential for successful completion of the degree. Module leaders: Dr Amanda Cross and Dr Filippos Filippidis.

DISEASE MASTERCLASS

This module aims to provide students with an overview of core health challenges and lines of epidemiological research being undertaken, across a range of infectious and non-communicable diseases. Module leader: Professor Tim Hallett.

INTRODUCTION TO STATISTICAL THINKING AND DATA ANALYSIS

The aim of this module is to give students an understanding of the importance of statistical thinking in epidemiology, randomised trials and public health, to enable them to critically evaluate the results of standard statistical analyses published in journal articles and to carry out a range of statistical analyses using R. Module leaders: Dr Victoria Cornelius and Hilary Watt.
