Dear Program Director,
I am writing to bring to your attention an event that might be of interest to students in your undergraduate or Master's program. The Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology at the University of Rochester is hosting an Open House for prospective graduate students on Saturday, November 1, 2014. The global demand for professionals and academics with advanced training in the statistical sciences is extremely strong and continues to grow. This event will provide students potentially interested in graduate study in biostatistics and statistics with an opportunity to learn about our programs, to meet with current students, faculty, and program alumni, and to gain some perspective on the many career opportunities this exciting field has to offer.
I would be most grateful if you could please post the attached announcement and inform your colleagues and potentially interested students of this opportunity. For more information, students may contact our Graduate Coordinator, Cheryl Bliss-Clark at URBiostat@bst.rochester.edu <mailto:URBiostat@bst.rochester.edu> or 585-275-6684, or visit our website, http://www.urmc.rochester.edu/biostat/events/prospective-student-open-house/open-house-2014.cfm.
