Jump start your graduate studies with our boot camp.

Welcome to the Department of Biostatistics Summer 2019 Boot Camp!

This program is meant to serve as a refresher of basic techniques in analysis and linear algebra, and should help you quickly get settled into your first year graduate level courses. Both master’s and doctoral students are encouraged to attend.

If you have any questions, please contact Ben Langworthy at blangwor@live.unc.edu or our Registrar Melissa Hobgood at mhobgood@bios.unc.edu.

Classes will run Monday-Friday from August 5 – 16, 2019. However the SAS class will involve lots of online work and may not meet everyday.

Linear Algebra

The Linear Algebra section is required for all current and incoming students who will take bios 762 (Theory and Applications of Linear and Generalized Linear Models) in the Fall semester. Incoming students who are interested in getting extra review and instruction for Linear Algebra are welcome to attend even if they will not take bios 762 in the Fall semester.

Real Analysis

The Real Analysis section is required for all current and incoming students who will take bios 760 (Advanced Probability and Statistical Inference 1) in the Fall 2018 semester. Incoming students who are interested in getting extra review and instruction for Real Analysis are welcome to attend even if they will not take bios 760 in the Fall semester.

SAS

The SAS section is required for all incoming doctoral students who will take bios 611 (Introduction to Data Science) instead of bios 511 (Introduction to Statistical Computing and Data Management). Students can request exemption from the SAS section if they have had prior experience with SAS. The SAS bootcamp will go over the basics of how to use SAS which will not be covered in bios 611, but will be helpful and/or expected in some other Biostatistics courses.
