Presentation 3J4. Intensive Short-Courses in Biostatistics for Fellows and Physicians

Walter T. Ambrosius (USA)
Amita K. Manatunga (USA)


Presentation Abstract
At both of our universities we teach (with colleagues) introductory courses in statistics for fellows and physicians. We do not expect that those taking these courses will be able to do their own statistical work, but rather the intention is for them to "learn the language" and to facilitate future collaboration. Basic principles of study design are introduced as well as some of the most common statistical procedures. We will discuss the factors (what works and what doesn't) that may contribute to a successful course, a comparison to other courses, and our self-evaluation strategy. Finally, we will cover the financial arrangements that we have made when teaching these courses.
