Career opportunities

The ‘MPH in Epidemiology and Biostatistics’ upholds the mission of the James Lind Institute for bridging the skills-need gap in public health and clinical research. This specialization offers public health professionals a rewarding career in this fast-expanding discipline of collecting, analyzing, interpreting, and presenting healthcare data for policy development and implementation. The COVID-19 pandemic has further highlighted the need for public health professionals and epidemiologists.

The program provides a focussed understanding of epidemiology and biostatistics and enhances your skills to integrate biostatistics and epidemiological concepts in study designs, implementation, analysis, data interpretation, policy development, and management aspects of public health practice.

Apart from public health practice, students who complete this program will also be able to explore careers in the fields of academics & training, community education, consulting, patient advocacy, policy development, hospital infection control, and NGO operations to name a few.
