Overview

The study programme not only gives students the opportunity to acquire in-depth knowledge of methods for processing statistical data, but also enhances their understanding of the causes and development of the most common diseases, as well as epidemiological and clinical research.
The programme’s students have access to well-equipped auditoriums and modern computer classrooms with the latest logistical resources, IT equipment, statistical software (R, SAS, IBM SPSS Statistics, STATA), audio and video equipment, interactive whiteboards, as well as a library with extensive research databases from around the world.
The study programme will be implemented by combining learning theoretical knowledge and developing skills, both with traditional lectures and interactive classes, as well as by studying independently. Modern learning and teaching methods, such as a simulation and project-based or problem-based learning approaches will be used.

The programme was developed in close cooperation with the University of Latvia, the University of Tartu, Uppsala University and the University of Gothenburg, involving the teaching staff from the aforementioned universities in the implementation of the courses. In addition, visiting lecturers from pharmaceutical companies from Latvia and abroad will be involved for integrating specialist knowledge.

Programme structure

The programme includes 4 main study course blocks:

statistics courses
on classical and innovative methods for processing statistical data are aimed at the use of methods for processing statistical data and analysing the obtained results in-depth;
medicine courses
on human anatomy, chemical processes, laboratory tests for diagnosis and the aetiology, diagnosis and treatment of the most common diseases, for students to understand and analyse the obtained data and be able to fully interpret the results;
epidemiology courses
focused on developing research skills, as well as on raising awareness of public health guidelines, research methodology and planning;
clinical trial courses
on organising research, drawing up of documentation, legislation, ethical aspects and key principles of data statistical processing.

Career opportunities

Graduates from the study programme primarily work as biostatisticians in pharmaceutical companies and clinical research organisations (CRO), with planning data collection in clinical trials and observations, statistically processing the obtained data and analysing the results. Biostatisticians also work at universities, scientific institutes, laboratories and other research foundations that collect data and analyse results in health-related fields.
