University of Waterloo (CSEB-UW)

The University of Waterloo CSEB Chapter

Founded in the summer of 2015, CSEB-UW seeks to promote the disciplines of epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of Waterloo, with the goal of encouraging students to pursue further study in both disciplines. Our events focus on raising interest and awareness about epidemiology and biostatistics, as well as providing practical guidance on topics such as internships, graduate school, and COOP programs, as well as recognition of student research conducted at UWaterloo. Interested students are encouraged to email us at cseb.uw@gmail.com and follow us on Twitter at@CSEB_UW.

CSEB-UW was proud to hold its inaugural event, a Career Day, on September 21, 2015. Approximately 30 students attended the event to hear advice on careers in epidemiology and biostatistics, and public health. The panelists, Dr. Mark Oremus (School of Public Health and Health Systems, University of Waterloo), Dr. Cecilia Cotton (Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, University of Waterloo), and Ms. Maryam Iraniparast (PhD Candidate, School of Public Health and Health Systems, University of Waterloo) also discussed tips and tricks for applying to graduate school.

On November 18th, 2015, CSEB-UW held a second career day event, focusing on graduate programs in public health. The panelists included Dr. John Garcia (Associate Director, Graduate Professional Programs, School of Public Health & Health Systems), Dr. Linda Jessup (Associate Director, Undergraduate Studies, School of Public Health & Health Systems), Michelle Fluit (Professional Graduate Programs Coordinator, School of Public Health & Health Systems), Danielle Fearon (Graduate Student).

During the Winter 2016 semester, CSEB-UW organized a mentorship program for first-year students majoring in Health Studies, Public Health, and Biology. Upper-year students provided advice on COOPs, internships, extracurricular activities, and upper-year courses. A professional photo shoot was also organized for students interested in taking headshots for LinkedIn.

More events will be planned in the next few months, including panel discussions and a 3-minute undergraduate thesis event. Be sure and check our Facebook Group for the latest news.
