The program flyer
explains that SIBS is offered at three sites: Boston University, North
Carolina State University, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

SIBS introduces quantitatively oriented undergraduate students to
Biostatistics. Students learn about the applications of statistical
methods to biomedical research through coursework and hands-on
experience working with real data collected in major clinical studies.
Each of the three program sites has its own unique features, but they
all have a well-conceived, balanced agenda and an outstanding staff of
dedicated investigators and professors.
Participants receive college credit that can transfer back to their home
institutions. All costs are covered: tuition, housing, meals, etc.
