Yale Center for Analytical Sciences – Young Scholars Summer Program in Biostatistics and Medical Research
Program Dates: July 19th – July 30th
Application Deadline: April 5th
In collaboration with clinical researchers, biostatisticians at the Yale Center for Analytical Sciences (YCAS) design research studies and use statistical methods to address critical problems in medicine and public health. The YCAS Young Scholars intensive summer program provides promising high school students entering 11th and 12th grade, who excel in math, with the opportunity to learn about the work of biostatisticians. During this two-week program, students will be introduced to basic statistical methods and study designs used in medical research. We also provide instruction in “R,” a computer programming language used for statistical analyses. Students work in teams and use real health science data to address study questions and develop a final presentation.

OPEN TO STUDENTS ENTERING GRADES 11-12.
