QBS Program Celebrates First Master of Science Graduating Class

As the Dartmouth community holds its various Class Day ceremonies virtually this year, one highlight amongst the celebrations will be the graduation of the first Master of Science (MS) degree class of the Graduate Program in Quantitative Biomedical Sciences (QBS).

The QBS program—which spans both the Geisel School of Medicine and the Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced studies and draws faculty from a number of departments across Dartmouth—trains highly qualified students in bioinformatics, biostatistics, epidemiology, health data science, and medical informatics for careers in academia and industry.

The talented group of 20 graduates, who hail from across the U.S. as well as Ethiopia, Greece, Ghana, China, India, Brazil, and Canada, formed the first cohort to begin the QBS Master of Science program in August 2018—with 18 students choosing the program’s Health Data Science concentration and two students the Epidemiology concentration. A third track, Medical Informatics, will become available in fall 2020.
