Summer Institute in Biostatistics

The Summer Institute for Training in Biostatistics (SIBS) offers a comprehensive six to seven week summer training course on biostatistics with relevant examples that include data collected in studies of heart, lung, blood, and sleep disorders. Designed to address a growing imbalance between the demand and supply for biostatisticians, the course targets undergraduates and beginning graduate students who are interested in learning about biostatistics. The program will provide an intensive introduction to biostatistical approaches and research by exposing participants to the principles, methodologies, uses, and applications of statistical methods in biomedical and clinical research. Courses will be offered during the summers of 2016, 2017, and 2018. The program was initiated in 2004 at Boston University, North Carolina State University, and the University of Wisconsin, and has been expanded to meet the increasing need.

For the upcoming session of 2016, the NHLBI supports seven SIBS programs.
