For Investigators

The Division of Biostatistics will be offering free biostatistical consulting during the Spring semester of 2018, in the context of PubH 7465: Biostatistics Consulting. PubH 7465 is, in some sense, a capstone class for second year masters students in the Division of Biostatistics, and one of the primary aims of the course is for students to gain practical experience providing biostatistical consulting for researchers in the Academic Health Center.

All consulting sessions will include two graduate students and a faculty member in the Division of Biostatistics. It is expected that the students will be primarily responsible for all consulting services but the faculty member will take an active role in advising the students throughout the process.

A list of services provided can be found below. All consulting work, including any follow-up work, must be able to be completed during the Spring semester of 2018. Please contact either Kyle Rudser ( or Ann Brearley ( with questions.
