The NHLBI CVD training grant is a full-time, NHLBI-funded T32 postdoctoral research training program in cardiovascular epidemiology and prevention based in the division of epidemiology.

In addition to the CVD training grant, our division offers training in epidemiology through courses and independent studies offered through several Northwestern degree programs.

The Master of Science in Biostatistics (MS) is a four-quarter (July 1st – mid-June) program training postdoctoral and predoctoral scientists to apply current methods of epidemiology and biostatistics to conduct research on a range of health problems facing the population.

The Masters of Public Health Program (MPH) offers an accredited master’s degree in public health to full-time (accelerated), part time, and joint degree students and offers a specific concentration in epidemiology.

The Masters of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI) program is a part-time evening program primarily for medical residents, fellows and junior faculty members who wish to receive formal training in clinical research.
