The Biostatistics Student Association (BSA) is in its third year at Boston University. The group organizes numerous student-driven events.Last year’s events included a Fall semester meet-and-greet, a student luncheon with new and veteran students to discuss questions about courses, qualifying exams, internships, and career opportunities
, and a feature lecture given by Dr. Ted Colton on what it means to be a biostatistician. The BSA also organized other social events, such as the annual Halloween party and meet-and-greets for new students. This year the group aims to continue organizing fun and informative events and social activities, as well as initiating a student-led journal club.
The BSA meets monthly in the biostatistics department in the Crosstown building. Please see your email for upcoming meetings and events. If you would like more information about the BSA please see the organization’s website: blogs.bu.edu/bubsa/ or contact us via email at [email protected]
The International Society for Clinical Biostatistics was founded in 1978 to stimulate research into the principles and methodology used in the design and analysis of clinical research and to increase the relevance of statistical theory to the real world of clinical medicine. Membership is open to all interested individuals who share the Aims of the Society.
ISCB's membership include clinicians, statisticians and members of other disciplines, such as epidemiologists, clinical chemists and clinical pharmacologists, working or interested in the field of clinical biostatistics.
The CSEB is a Canadian organization of professionals, founded in 1990, for the purpose of fostering epidemiological and biostatistical research and practice in Canada. The CSEB facilitates networking among epidemiologists and biostatisticians across Canada
and communicates breaking news of relevance to our members.We promote the professions of epidemiology and biostatistics at all levels of government, academia and industry, and we engage with our counterparts in the USA and internationally. Not only do we assist faculties and schools of medicine and public health to improve training in our disciplines, we also bridge both the research and practice aspects of our disciplines through close collaboration with other groups such as the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), the Association of Public Health Epidemiologists in Ontario (APHEO), the Saskatchewan Epidemiology Association (SEA), the Statistical Society of Canada (SSC), and the Canadian Association of Veterinary Epidemiology Preventive Medicine (CAVEPM).
The Biostatistics Student Association is a student run organization for all undergraduate and graduate students in the Department of Biostatistics in the Gillings School of Global Public Health at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
