It is an online program that is available to practitioners and/or students at WVU and elsewhere. Learn more about the Department of Biostatistics and the Applied Biostatistics Certificate program online.
Individuals who would be interested in this certificate include clinical and translational researchers at varying levels of their career (faculty, fellows, residents, basic scientists), as well as public health practitioners. Because it is an online program, students join the program from West Virginia and beyond. Interested individuals should have a desire to be more self-sufficient with their research, specifically being able to know basic study design principles, analyze their data and interpret their results.
