Biostatistics has open door hours (Fall and Spring Semesters Only) for walk-in consults from 9-12 a.m. on Mondays on the Health Sciences Campus. Consults are on a first come, first serve basis and will be located in the the Allied Health Building (room 2435). Appointments to block off a specific time are welcome.

Faculty may schedule a consult by filling out our consulting request form. If you fill out a consulting form and no one has been in touch within 7 business days, please contact Dr. Paul Vos at vosp@ecu.edu. Students, medical residents, and medical fellows may obtain limited consulting services by attending the walk-in consulting hours on both Main Campus and the Health Sciences Campus.

 

Main Campus Consulting

In coordination with the Office for Faculty Excellence, the department of biostatistics has some exciting opportunities for researchers at ECU to get the statistical help they need.

Currently faculty from the department of biostatistics hold office hours for consulting services on main campus. Appointments are preferred but walk-ins are accepted if we are available.

Researchers will have an initial consult to discuss their projects and what kind of services they need. Those services may include (but are not limited to) those mentioned above. Biostatistics faculty will ascertain your level of need and work out a plan for how we can help.

Main Campus Office Hours

Wednesday: 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.; 1:00-4:00 p.m.

Friday: 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.

We are located in the Joyner Library, room 1004, which is in the Office for Faculty Excellence Suite.
