Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Have a greater ability to understand and solve real-world medical statistics problems;
  2. Be able to participate in a research team as a medical statistician;
  3. Produce a publication-ready draft manuscript, thus increasing their written communication skills and employment prospects.

Students will learn to apply statistical methods by undertaking a research project in a topic of their choice. Students will be supervised by one or more health researchers, and have access to advice from a statistician. Students will generate a report in the form of a journal article for assessment. Many student projects will culminate in a published research manuscript that can be included in their CV.




Assumed Knowledge Students need to have completed a minimum of 30 units, including Computational Statistics/Data Management (BIOS6010), Foundations of Probability Theory (BIOS6170) and Linear Regression Modeling (BIOS6070).
