Thesis Project

All students complete a thesis in the form of a collaborative research project. The goal of the thesis project is to provide students with a collaborative experience in applied epidemiology in the form of real-world data analysis and methods development that will help align with future careers.

The thesis is a collaborative project involving both epidemiology and medical research faculty, and it will include epidemiologic study design, data collection and data analysis. The final product consists of a publishable manuscript (2,500-3,500 words in length) and a poster presentation (with awards for highest-ranking poster). Faculty will help students identify projects and pair up with advisers.
