Detailed information about this course:
This course will not be offered in 2021.
The analysis of collected data is an inevitable part of almost any medical research project. Consequently, knowledge of and insight in the basic principles of data-analysis are essential for medical researchers. The course CC02 - Biostatistical Methods I: basic principles is designed to teach classical and basic statistical techniques for the analysis of medical research data. The course comprises lectures as well as computer practicals, in which students will apply the widely used statistical software packages SPSS and/or R to work through exercises.
CC02 consists of two parts. In part A, which lasts one week, basic applications of biostatistics will be introduced, including descriptive statistics, general principles of statistical hypothesis testing, statistical inferences on means and proportions, and interval estimates for association measures.
During the lectures, time will be spent on practical examples and exercises. Throughout the course, examples of SPSS- and R-programmes and -output will be demonstrated in relation to the topics that will be discussed.
Biostatistical Methods I: Basic Principles, part A (CC02A) is equivalent to Introduction to Data-analysis (ESP03) and Biostatistics for Clinicians (EWP22).
Understanding and using basic applications of biostatistics in the analysis of medical research data, like descriptive statistics, general principles of statistical hypothesis testing, statistical inferences on means and proportions, and interval estimates for association measures.
Especially for Erasmus MC PhD candidates who only want to attend CC02a (not the full course CC02). Also for other interested students or candidates.
