The Department of Public Health Sciences offers two graduate degree programs, the Master of Science in Public Health Sciences for Clinical Professionals (MSCP), and a Ph.D. program.
Master of Science in Public Health Sciences for Clinical Professionals (MSCP)
The MSCP is a course of study in the theory, methods, and concepts of biostatistics, epidemiology, and health services research needed to design and carry out clinical and epidemiologic research programs. It is designed for the professional enhancement of individuals who already have doctoral-level expertise in Medicine and related clinical disciplines.
Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Degree Program in the Department of Public Health Sciences
The Ph.D. program offers advanced courses of study in biostatistics, epidemiology, and health services research, supported by a core methodological curriculum in population-based research on human health.
Course List 2014-2015
New Course Offered in Spring 2015
Course Instructor: Donald Hedeker
PQ: PBHS 32400 (HSTD 32400) and PBHS 32700 (HSTD 32700) or consent of instructor.
This course will focus on the analysis of multilevel data in which subjects are nested within clusters (e.g., health care providers, hospitals). The focus will be on clustered data, and several extensions to the basic two-level multilevel model will be considered including three-level, cross-classified, multiple membership, and multivariate models. In addition to models for continuous outcomes, methods for non-normal outcomes will be covered, including multilevel models for dichotomous, ordinal, nominal, time-to-event, and count outcomes. Some statistical theory will be given, but the focus will be on application and interpretation of the statistical analyses.
