Department of Biostatistics to offer short course on biostatistics for health care researchers

Apr. 4, 2013

In May, the Department of Biostatistics will offer a three-day course on biostatistics for health care researchers.

The course, 1 to 5 p.m. May 14-16, will cover basic concepts of statistical methods commonly encountered in health care literature.

The course will be located in the HITS Building, HS1110, and is open to faculty, fellows and residents, as well as other interested students and staff.  

Enrollment will be limited to the first 30 registrants.

This course will consist of three sessions. Sessions I and II will cover basic principles, design of medical research studies, standard statisti-cal tests and data analyses, and data management. Session III will focus on more advanced topics, including multiple linear and logistic regression, survival analysis, longitudinal data and genet-ic analysis. Registrants may choose to attend Sessions I and II, II and III or I, II and III.

At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
  • Recognize common study designs and statistical methods used in medical research;
  • Discuss complex study design and analysis with a statistician;
  • Describe basic concepts of data management;
  • Identify appropriate use of statistical procedures when given a common study design; and
  • Employ simple statistical analyses under the guidance of a statistician.
