CLTR 501 - Intro to Biostats in Clin Res
This course provides a foundation for current and future thinking in terms of practical aspects of the importance of biostatistics in conducting clinical research and thereafter translating its findings.  One purpose of this course is to make the student aware of the complexities of the relationships between biostatistics and clinical research, particularly as they pertain to decision making.  This course provides students a scientifically oriented perspective on the types of information that is integral for the proper design and conduct of clinical research.  The goal is to improve students’ conceptual understanding of the differences and similarities among the different inferential tests, and the appropriate use of statistical tests. Assessments target articulation of arguments and decisions involving, or based on, fundamental aspects of biostatistics in the context of medical research. Each of the modules are enhanced by examples using PRISM software (GraphPad).
