Relative risk vs. odds ratios - this is one of the topics
covered in our "Biostatistics 2" course. While we recommend
taking Biostatistics 1 first, most of the topics in Biostatistics 2
can be undertaken on their own, by anyone with a grounding in
basic statistical inference. Dr. Abhaya Indrayan presents this
course March 11 to April 8 at statistics.com.
Feb 25: Clinical Trials Statistics-Bioavailability and Bioequivalence
Mar 11: Biostatistics 2 (more below)
Mar 25: Survival Analysis
Apr 1: Categorical Data Analysis
Apr 8: Meta Analysis
“Biostatistics 2” covers the basic principles of design for
randomized clinical trials, receiver-operator characteristic
(ROC) curves, relative risk, odds ratios, and introductory
survival analysis. The focus in this course is on medical and
health applications rather than on method development.
The instructor, Dr. Abhaya Indrayan, in addition to co-authoring
“Medical Biostatistics,” (2nd ed., CRC Press), has also written a
book on medical research methods. He is Chair of the Department
of Biostatistics and Medical Informatics at the College of Medical
Sciences, University of Delhi, and frequently provides
biostatistical consultation to the World Health Organization,
the World Bank and UNAIDS.
The course will require about 15 hours per week and there are no
Set hours when you must be online. Participants can ask questions
And exchange comments directly with Dr. Indrayan via a private
discussion board throughout the period.
Students should have access to a standard statistical software
package for use during the course.
