Certificate program: Applied Biostatistics: Methods & Applications

Session dates:

  • September 12, 2022 – April 1, 2023 (Track 1)
  • September 12, 2022 – July 1, 2023 (Track 2)

Application deadline: August 19, 2022

Certificate program offering an overview of study design and applied biostatistics. Content includes review of the most common techniques in the field and how these techniques are applied in standard statistical software. Format: weekly lectures, learning assessments, and practicum exercises. Optional journal club sessions, office hours, and discussion boards are also available.

Course tracks:

Participants must select one of the following course tracks:

Track 1: Applied Biostatistics: Core Curriculum

  • Ideal for participants who are interested in an abbreviated curriculum and shorter course commitment.

Track 2: Applied Biostatistics: Core Curriculum and Advanced Topics

  • Ideal for learners who are interested in a more comprehensive course, with the opportunity to select from more advanced topics at the end of the course.

Time commitment:

It is expected that course participants will dedicate up to 4 hours per week to this online course.

Each week, participants will view a multi-part video lecture and will be responsible for completing a quiz and practicum exercise related to the topic for the week. The practicum will demonstrate how to apply the technique in a standard statistical package (STATA®) and provide practice problems so that the concept is reinforced.

Those participants who view all videos and complete the lecture quizzes and practicum quizzes associated with 80% of course content will earn a certificate of completion.
