This innovative program provides a blend of programming know-how, high level statistics, and biomedical research methods. Students develop expertise in data analyses with medical and healthcare applications.

Mathematics and statistics rank among the highest paying and most in-demand careers. Biostatisticians not only employ commonly used statistics such as regression and analyses of variance, but they also use an array of fascinating statistics such as survival statistics and Bayesian statistics. This is an exciting way of bringing statistics to life.

Turning to SAS, this program provides practical skills in creating variables, entering data, and running analyses in SAS. SAS programmers can command salaries upwards of $80,000 per year right out of college. SAS is the program of choice for research in clinical trials, in medical and healthcare settings, and increasingly in business and market research. Internships and summer jobs in these areas require SAS expertise. While courses in C++, Python, and HTML are widely available, SAS programs for teens are a rarity, giving graduates of this program a competitive advantage.
