Medical University of South Carolina, Department of Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and Epidemiology

The Department of Public Health Sciences (formerly Division of Biostatistics and Epidemiology/DBE) creates an environment that continually provides opportunities and challenges for novel and creative approaches and solutions to biomedical research. The faculty with diverse backgrounds and expertise in biostatistics (including Bayesian methods, clinical trials designs, missing data handling, survival analyses, clustered data analyses), epidemiology (including cancer, central nervous system injury, neurological disorders, autism, diabetes, infectious diseases), and behavioral and social sciences provides a synergistic environment for students to actively pursue cross-disciplinary methodological and applied research in public health.​

The newly revised curriculum emphasizes strong quantitative training to ensure that all DPHS students will be equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to design and conduct scientifically sound research.
