  • The CSRI 2017 Application Supplement through which candidates are asked to provide a few additional pieces of information and upload the supporting materials listed below:
    • Curriculum vitae;
    • A personal statement of no more than 500 words, describing research interests, career goals, and reasons for applying to the program;
  • The CSRI 2017 Recommendation Form with an attached letter from two individuals who can comment knowledgeably on the candidate's research potential. Each reference should complete his/her own recommendation form and upload a letter on the candidate's behalf.
    • The first reference must come from the candidate's department chair or division chief, and must indicate that the department/division will assume financial costs for the candidate's participation in the program. Assurance that the candidate will be given time off (no clinical or work duties) for the duration of the program must also be included.

If you have already submitted an application for an MSPH degree program (e.g. the POR or CRM degree programs in Biostatistics) through SOPHAS, you may write to csri@columbia.edu and give CSRI explicit permission to review your SOPHAS application in place of the MSPH Application for CSRI 2017. However, the CSRI 2017 Application Supplement and CSRI 2017 Recommendation Forms are still required.
