Prospective Students

Prospective students who are interested in Statistical Genetics can apply through the Department of Epidemiology or apply through the Department of Biostatistics.  It is strongly recommended that students apply to both departments.  Some admissions criteria, such as quality of fit with each department or quality of fit with specific mentors in each department, may vary across departments.  In addition, the availability of funding may vary across departments.  Prospective students or Postdoctoral Fellows who have questions about opportunities for training or research at HSPH should contact Alkes Price.
