Interested in Biostatistics?

MAPS (Mentorship and Advice for Prospective Students) is a program to provide mentorship for prospective biostatistics graduate school applicants, particularly for students from backgrounds that are historically underrepresented in the field.

We will be hosting an advice panel to discuss preparing for and applying to graduate programs in biostatistics. We encourage any students who are at all interested in pursuing a graduate degree in biostatistics (or a related field) to attend and bring their questions.

The panel will be on Friday, October 27th from 4-4:50 pm (during the BSPH open house), in room MHRC 0001.
