CSOM Research Associate Awarded PStat Accreditation

Rose Calixte

CUNY School of Medicine Reseach Associate, Rose Saint Fleur-Clixte, Ph.D., has been awarded the American Statistical Association's (ASA) Professional Statistician (PStat) accreditation. The accreditation conveys to the wider world that Calixte is a professional statistician, much the way architects, engineers, doctors, and lawyers who hold accreditations are viewed as professionals by their coworkers, clients, the media, and the public. For that reason, PStat is a valuable recognition for statisticians working in the business industry, government, or private consulting. 

Calixte is a research associate at CSOM. In this capacity, she serves as the lead statistician across multiple studies in the Department of Community Health and Social Medicine (CHASM). She also serves as a resource to CSOM medical students serving as a research assistant to CHASM faculty. 

"The ASA's 18,000 members worldwide join me in congratulating Rose on the award of the PStat accreditation," said Colleen Kelly, PStat, chair of the ASA's Accreditation Committee. "As a PStat holder, Rose has distinguished herself in the eyes of her peers, employer, collaborators, and society at large as a professionals statistician who is well-versed in the knowledge of statistics at an advanced level." 

The ASA is the world's largest community of statisticians and the second oldest continuously operating professional society in the United States. Its members serve in the industry, government, and academia in more than 90 countries, advancing research and promoting sound statistical practice to inform public policy and improve human welfare.
