Masters degrees in Medical Statistics examine statistical techniques related to the collection and analysis of medical data for various purposes.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Statistics with Medical Applications, and Applied Statistics in Health Sciences. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate Mathematics subject, or a medical subject with a large mathematical component.
Medical Statistics is an important part of understanding large sets of data about medical care, providing a wealth of information about those who provide it, the materials used, and those who receive it.
One means through which statistics is used in the healthcare sector is to collect data about the kinds of services different members of the population use – thus allowing you to assess where different needs can be met.
Other specialised applications include practices such as bioinformatics, which trace the effects of various substances on the body and help to predict the likely effect of newly-developed substances.
You might also branch into careers in technology, developing products such as wearable technology which can track different elements of care for different individuals.
