GHHE 000/5110 - Biostatistics for Public Health (3 cr.)



Description
The objectives are to educate the student in the research skills (statistics and experimental design) and mathematical applications in the data analysis required to design and conduct rigorous peer-reviewed studies in biomedicine and public health, prepare and critique regulatory reports, including incorporating statistics in preparing a satisfactory research proposal. Students will gain, through hands-on experience, exercises, and examination, the ability to use appropriate summary and inferential statistical analysis. Associations between determinants and response through parametric and non-parametric measures, data transformation for multivariate analysis will be covered through exercises. The use of statistical packages suitable for biomedical and public health research will be introduced. In short, students will also be able to design, experimentally and statistically, appropriate studies that can withstand appropriate peer review.
