Description

## Objective:

The course objective is to cover basic statistical concepts of probability, confidence intervals and medical vs. statistical significance. The second half of this course teaches clinical trial designs including randomized controlled trials, ROC curves, CI and tests for relative risk and odds ratio, and an introduction to survival analysis.

## Learning Outcomes:

• explain the role probability in health and medicine
• select the proper statistical tests for quantitative data
• be familiar with designs for clinical trials Plot ROC curves
• calculate relative risk (RR) and odds ratio (OR)
• calculate and interpret sensitivity-specificity and predictive values of medical tests
• calculate and interpret confidence intervals
• assess medical vs. statistical significance
• calculate and interpret Chi-square, Student's t and ANOVA F-tests, including multiple comparisons
• draft and review clinical trial designs including randomized controlled trials
• calculate and interpret ROC curves, CI and tests for relative risk and odds ratio
• review and interpret basic survival analysis
• calculate and interpret sample size and power
• calculate and interpret randomization (exact) tests
