Simulation Methods in Medical Statistics
With the availability of faster and more powerful computers, statistical simulations are being applied to an increasing range of problems in medical research where traditional methods do not provide a solution. This course aims to provide students with the theoretical and practical knowledge to apply simulation techniques to real-world problems.

On successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
Students will learn to use simulation techniques to solve complex statistical problems in medical research. The concept of Monte Carlo methods will be further developed and combined with Markov Chains. Resampling methods will be explained and applied to a range of problems. Throughout the course the interpretation of results will be emphasised at a level suitable for publication.
