Dr. Donna Spiegelman is the Director of the New Master of Science (MS) Biostatistics specialization in "Implementation and Prevention Science Methods" at the Yale School of Public Health
We have recently developed a specialization in ”Implementation and Prevention Science Methods” that all MS Biostatistics students matriculating this fall will be able to choose. If you plan to attend Yale you will be able to choose this specialization or the regular Biostatistics curriculum. You will have until the beginning of the spring (2021) term to decide which specialization you wish to follow. To help you make this decision we will host an information session during the fall term with the Director of this specialization, Dr. Donna Spiegelman.
