Master of Biostatistics, The University of Adelaide and BCA Star Graduate 2021
Undertaking the Masters of Biostatistics was one of the best decisions of my professional career. It enhanced the data analytic skills and knowledge gained during my undergraduate training in medicine and medical science. These skills were invaluable as a biostatistician for clinical trials and during my PhD candidature. In an era where public health and medical trials are on the forefront of news thanks to the pandemic, there is a demand for biostatisticians. I would strongly recommend the BCA Masters for those interested in medical statistics and health science; it is also broadly applicable to many careers. Be warned, undertaking BCA courses may lead to your peers labelling you as the “stats guy!”
The BCA hosted a Careers in Biostatistics Webinar on 25th May 2023.
Congratulations to Jana Bednarz and Ling Wen Davies for graduating with a Masters from the University of Adelaide
