The Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD) core of the Colorado Clinical & Translational Sciences Institute (CCTSI) is pleased to announce a Short Course in Biostatistics on seven Thursday evenings this fall.
This course is focused on clinical and medical investigations. Material will be presented within a clinical context and will emphasize basic statistical concepts at an accelerated pace. (All lecture. No homework. No grades. Not for credit.) If you are interested in improving your ability to critically assess the literature, more rigorously design research studies, or more effectively understand and communicate biostatistical issues, this course is for you.
