Contemporary Medical Statistics

Credits: 10

This module takes statistical analysis further than can be covered in the core research methods module and is advised for those students planning quantitative projects. More complex topics like survival analysis and logistic regression are covered in detail. All teaching is in small hands-on sessions and you have plenty of opportunity to work with real datasets. Assessment is via mini-assignments (30%) and an open book computer practical (analysis) examination (70%).
