Applications are being considered through February 10th for the summer 2020 cohort of LA’s Biostatistics Education Summer Training program at USC (LA’s BEST@USC). The 2020 program will run June 15th – July 24th.

LA’s BEST@USC is a six-week Los Angeles summer program in USC’s Department of Population and Public Health Sciences that trains underrepresented students to explore health issues using quantitative methods. The program provides public health training from expert biostatisticians, epidemiologists and data scientists.

All expenses are paid for USC and non-USC undergraduate students who have completed at least two years of study. Participants earn USC course credit while exploring health data analysis, epidemiology, clinical trials, statistical genetics and spatial statistics for geographical modeling. In addition to learning R, a widely used research software, the students will examine data from groundbreaking public health research studies including the Southern California Children’s Health Study.
