Epidemiology and Biostatistics

Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Arizona provides students with the scientific framework for understanding health and disease. The division supports the instruction, research and service mission of the College by providing excellent classroom, research and community training opportunities to students.

Why Study at The University of Arizona?

Collaborations. Our students have an abundance of excellent research and instructional opportunities available to them. The University of Arizona has a nationally ranked teaching hospital, a comprehensive cancer center, and a center of excellence for respiratory disease. Also, the University has developed a unique Bio5 Institute. Our faculty and students have developed strong collaborations with all of these centers.
Mentorships. One of the strengths of the division is the quality of interaction between students and faculty. With a low student to faculty ratio, students have better access to faculty and more opportunities for mentoring relationships.
Service Learning. The College has outstanding service learning opportunities, including the SAFER program (Student Aid for Field Epidemiology Response). This program provides public health students real world experience in working an outbreak investigation. In addition to hands-on work with state and county health departments, students have had the opportunity to do field work (including syndromic surveillance) at events like the Super Bowl, MLB All Star game and the Fiesta Bowl.
