Yale Center for Analytical Sciences Young Scholars Program

Overview

During our two-week program, you will work closely with faculty, staff, graduate students and peer mentors to: learn basic biostatistics; run statistical tests using a programming language called “R”; learn about the design of health sciences research studies; work in teams, with real data from Yale studies, to answer research questions using statistics; prepare a group presentation of your work for family, friends, and YCAS staff. During informal lunchtime talks, you will meet several of our biostatisticians and learn about their work and about careers in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. You will also learn about life at Yale, through tours of the campus and immersion in its culture.
