Teaching and Training
Quantitative Health Sciences faculty play an active role in training the next generation of scientists and clinician-researchers and are involved in teaching activities across the campus.
Masters of Science in Clinical Investigation Program
The MSCI program emphasizes the development of strong clinical investigation skills based on a solid foundation in study design, conduct of observational studies and randomized trials, clinical epidemiology, and biostatistics. The program offers two concentration tracks: population-based clinical research, and bench-to-bedside translational research. Dr. Robert Goldberg, Division Chief of Epidemiology within the Department of QHS, is the Director of the MSCI, and several QHS faculty teach courses.
Clinical & Population Health Research
The Clinical & Population Health Research program offers a PhD that addresses the national need to move health research from laboratory to bedside and from patients to health care systems. Several QHS faculty members are affiliated with the CPHR program and will be increasingly involved in teaching courses and mentoring students, including offering research rotations and serving on dissertation committees. For example, Dr. Catarina Kiefe is developing and will soon be offering a course on T2 research.
QHS faculty are also involved in teaching and training medical students at UMMS. Dr. Jeroan Allison is the co-leader of a new medical school course on Genetics and Population Health. In the future, QHS clinicians will participate in precepting house staff.
Seminars and Lectures
In addition to being involved in degree-bearing programs, QHS faculty also regularly present lectures and seminars across campus, such as Grand Rounds and the Current Topics in Epidemiology and Biostatics Seminar Series.
Quantitative Methods Core - 3rd Tuesdays Methods Workshops
The Department of Quantitative Health Sciences and the Quantitative Methods Core will conduct monthly workshops to explore statistical issues of general interest.
Bridge to Success Research in Progress Workgroup - 2nd Tuesday of the Month
This workgroup provides an informal setting for new and experienced researchers to share nascent ideas or research-in-progress and to receive just-in-time feedback.
Upcoming lectures and seminars by QHS faculty are listed on the QHS Home Page
