MUSC Department of Public Health Sciences

Formerly MUSC Division of Biostatistics and Epidemiology

The Department of Public Health Sciences (DPHS) was founded over 40 years ago in one of the oldest medical universities of the United States (circa 1824). The DPHS faculty with diverse backgrounds and expertise in biostatistics (including Bayesian methods, clinical trials designs, missing data handling, survival analyses, clustered data analyses) and epidemiology (including cancer, central nervous system injury, neurological disorders, autism, diabetes, Infectious diseases) provides a synergistic environment for students to actively pursue cross-disciplinary methodological and applied research.

Mission: The Department offers graduate training leading to MS and PhD degrees in Biostatistics and Epidemiology. It is also excited to now offer graduate training leading to the Master of Public Health designation. Our graduate programs are committed to a high quality interdisciplinary training. Past PhD graduates from our Department have faculty jobs within major universities and senior positions in government and industry. The department has over 29 faculty members and a diverse cohort of students. Faculty research covers a wide spectrum of disciplines in public health and other biomedical sciences. All faculty members are committed to teaching and mentoring students. The faculty has a long history of collaborations with basic and clinical science researchers, which provides students many opportunities to be innovative in their fields of interest.
