Current Biostatistics Students

bios_new_students_2016
As one of the leading biostatistics departments in the nation, we prepare students to apply quantitative skills to a wide variety of fields related to human health. We achieve this goal through classroom instruction in statistical theory and through innovative practical training opportunities at UNC and beyond. The success of the program is evident through its large and loyal alumni base, who currently occupy important positions in pharmaceutical companies, academic institutions, biotech firms and government agencies.

Biostatistics Student Association

The Biostatistics Student Association (BSA) is a student-run organization for all undergraduate and graduate students in the Department of Biostatistics in the Gillings School of Global Public Health at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. We seek to encourage interaction outside of the classroom through volunteer, social, and educational activities and create a stronger community within the Biostatistics department and the School of Public Health.

Computing

As of the 2013-2014 academic year owning a laptop is required. The university provides 24/7 computer support as well as on-site computer repair for PC and Mac computers purchased through the campus CCI program. Our faculty members increasingly are incorporating a wide variety of computer-based technologies into course content. Some courses include presentations on student laptops, use of laptops for taking notes or accessing the web, and use of social media tools, polling tools or other course-specific software during class. Students also use laptops for sharing group projects and other assignments. In short, laptops have become essential tools for 21st century students.

If you intend to run SAS (required for some courses) on your laptop you MUST have a Professional or higher version of Microsoft Windows. SAS will not install on a Home Edition Windows operating system.

For students interested in Mac laptop options, please use the configurations of the current MacBook Pro models as guidelines for recommended specifications. Current models available through CCI are found here: CCI Laptops

SAS for Mac users: SAS is only compatible with a Windows operating system (Professional or higher). A dual-boot system (BootCamp) or VM software is required for Mac users installing SAS. The Windows operating system is available to students through campus IT services.
