SIBS was designed to provide undergraduate and beginning graduate students with intensive training in applied biostatistical methods and to expose them to graduate school and career options in the fields of biostatistics, statistics, and public health. The program is funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, and by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences.
SIBS is an immersive four-week experience on Emory’s picturesque campus. Students take a two-credit hour graduate-level course in introductory applied biostatistical methods, they attend seminars and panel discussions featuring faculty, staff and alumni, and participate in field trips to local public health institutions as well as in numerous social activities.
SIBS 2017 will be held from June 7 - July 14. Applications for the 2017 program are now being accepted and are reviewed on a rolling basis.
