DS 703 - Biostatistical Analysis

Health science professionals must be able to analyze, understand, and describe health data to improve patients’ health and the care that they receive.

In this course, you will explore the basic concepts of statistics, such as probability, measures of central tendency, P values, confidence intervals, and random variation. You will also learn how to perform biostatistical analyses, including chi-square, t-tests, analysis of variance (ANOVA), correlation, and linear and logistic regression. Also presented are examples of factors that may impact these analyses, including confounding and effect modification. 

Lastly, you will learn how to effectively present your data visually in tables and graphs. This course prepares you to understand more advanced biostatistical analyses, to read and interpret biostatistical literature, and to ultimately perform your own biostatistical studies.
