Summer Institute for Training in Biostatistics (SIBS) at Emory

The Summer Institute for Training in Biostatistics (SIBS ) is an innovative program for undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in statistics, mathematics or science, and who would like to learn about the field of biostatistics. Over the course of approximately six weeks, students will engage in a comprehensive program of coursework, field experiences, hands-on data collection and analysis activities, and interactions with researchers and scientists in the fields of medicine and public health. Students will also learn about graduate school and career opportunities in biostatistics.

We are looking forward to hosting the SIBS program at Emory in 2012, and have put together an interesting, engaging, academically rigorous but fun set of SIBS activities. We encourage you to learn more about our program, and about sister programs at other institutions, by downloading the brochure and clicking the other links below.

The 2012 program will take place from June 11 to July 18. We will begin taking applications in December 2011.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact us.

Eligibility: Undergraduate and beginning graduate students majoring in mathematics, science, or other quantitatively oriented areas of study are eligible. In addition, college graduates considering graduate school are also eligible.
Applicants must be American citizens or permanent residents of the United States.

The SIBS program covers the cost of: University fees and tuition, University-provided housing and meals,  Program-sponsored field trips and extracurricular activities.
