The Ottawa-Carleton Institutes combine the research strengths of the University of Ottawa and Carleton University. The Institutes offer graduate programs leading to the master’s (MSc) and doctoral (PhD) degrees in several fields (biology, chemistry, earth sciences, etc.). Biostatistics is an interdisciplinary area of research linking statistics, biology, medicine, and health sciences. This growing area demands knowledge of the theory behind statistical procedures, an ability to put that theory into practice, and an understanding of the area of application. The applications range from clinical trials to population epidemiology and the development of new procedures. The specialization is intended to prepare a graduate for a career as a biostatistician in a health-related industry, or for a career in research.
