Dear ASA Members,
We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Master of Data Science in Health (MDSH) degree program at UCLA Biostatistics, commencing in fall 2023.
The MDSH program is a comprehensive two-year program meticulously designed to equip students with the skills necessary to thrive in the rapidly expanding field of data science within the healthcare industry. To accommodate the diverse needs of our students, all MDSH classes will be delivered through a flexible hybrid format. This approach combines monthly weekend in-person sessions with two remote evening sessions per week. By offering this flexibility, we aim to make the program accessible to both full-time working professionals and recent college graduates seeking an advanced degree for a rewarding career in data science within the health industry. International students are eligible for the F1 visa and STEM OPT extension.
The application process for the fall 2023 enrollment will open soon, and we encourage all interested individuals to take advantage of this exciting opportunity. The priority deadline for applications is July 25, 2023. For detailed information about the MDSH program, its curriculum, and the admission process, we invite you to visit our official website at https://mdsh.ucla.edu/. Additionally, we cordially invite you to join our live information sessions, where you will have the invaluable opportunity to engage with esteemed program faculty members, gain deeper insights into the curriculum, understand the admissions process, and explore the promising career prospects that await MDSH graduates.
