Find out more aboute the specialties of our program below! Further highlights can be found on the Twitter account of the Master Program.

Statistical Consulting Module

In the statistical consulting module our students work on real-world projects selected from the statistical consulting service of the Division of Biostatistics. Supervised by a senior statistician they write a reproducible report and present their results to the clients as well as their fellow students. Through this course, students gain experience in the statistical problems encountered in clinical research and at the same time train their communication and reporting skills. Many of the projects lead to publications.
