Help from students or recent graduates
MSPH and MPH students in Emory’s Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics must fulfill 200 hours of practical professional experience before they can graduate. These experiences need to be in ‘the real world’ and to use the knowledge and skills they learn in the classroom. As a practicum supervisor you could employ a student to setup or improve databases, clean data, run analyses, and write reports.
More information: contact Bob Lyles, PhD, MS or Lisa Elon. To post a position, we would need a short description of the proposed project, the general skills required, and your contact information and biosketch.
Diane Sophia Sant-Victor, BA, MPH is a global health graduate from Emory's RSPH and has had several epidemiology courses, a statistics course using SAS as well as a statistics course with SPSS in her undergraduate career.
More information: contact Ms. Saint-Victor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
