Why Biostatistics?

Biostatisticians design, implement, and analyze studies in medicine and public health in collaboration with other scientists.

There is a national shortage of biostatisticians, resulting in many career opportunities. According to the March 2015 Amstat News salary survey, the median salary for master’s level academic biostatisticians is $71,700; and $84,200 for PhD-level, academic non-faculty. Salaries in non-academic settings are higher.
