Florida Summer Institute in Biostatistics and Data Science (SIBDS) 2023

Have you ever wondered how data are used to make your life better? Any thought as to why COVID-19 affects certain populations more than others? What are clinical trials, why are they important, and how do we interpret evidence?

If you are an undergraduate or early graduate student with a curious mind, sense of justice, and some statistics, math, technology, biology and/or health science coursework, you are eligible for Florida’s Summer Institute in Biostatistics and Data Science Program (SIBDS). SIBDS is a Training Program funded by NIH. It will take place at Florida Atlantic University (FAU), Boca Raton campus from May 22nd through June 30th, 2023, with faculty from FAU, University of Miami, and Florida International University. Students enrolled will be housed at FAU unless they live close by, and will receive a stipend (not a salary) to cover most expenses.

Participation in SIBDS will provide great hands-on experience in conceptualizing research questions, determining and executing appropriate analyses, and interpreting results from three Projects using real data. You will also learn skills regarding resume building, networking and scientific communication. Please join us and you’ll see why in 2022 the U.S. News & World Report ranks ‘statistician’ as the 3rd top Business job, offering competitive salaries, limitless opportunities, and a healthy work-life balance. Careers in biostatistics and data science provide you with the tools to help change the world!
