Educational Activities

Members of the Division of Biostatistics are involved in various educational and training activities, both at Jefferson and in partnership with other institutions.

Drs. Chervoneva and Zhan teach "Statistical Methods of Data Analysis" (GC660) and Dr. Keith teaches "Fundamentals of Clinical Trials" (GC630), both graduate-level courses offered to fellows and graduate students through Jefferson's College of Biomedical Sciences.

Drs. Daskalakis and Leiby (but also other faculty of the Division) are active in various educational activities of the Department of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics. These activities include seminars, journal clubs, ethics conferences, mentoring, and participation in students' thesis committees (particularly of students in the MS in Pharmacology program, Human Investigation track). In addition, all faculty of the Division often give talks to various Jefferson audiences, such as at departmental seminars for fellows and students.

Faculty of the Division also participate in medical student education. For example, Dr. Daskalakis serves as the director of SKMC's medical students' Summer Research Program, a 7-10 week summer program that gives first-year medical students the opportunity to get involved in mentored biomedical research.

In addition to these educational activities involving Jefferson fellows and students, members of the Division of Biostatistics have been recently building training collaborations with Temple's graduate program in Statistics and with Drexel's graduate program in Epidemiology and Biostatistics. Drs. Chervoneva, Daskalakis, and Leiby have supervised students from these programs in summer internships, as well as on their thesis and dissertation research. Finally, Dr. Daskalakis has mentored minority undergraduate students from Cheyney University during summer internships at Jefferson.
