CLRA 6175 - Biostatistics♦


(3 sem. cr.) Competent and valuable clinical research administrators are able to read and evaluate the statistical accuracy of research, summarize data, and distinguish common distributions; however, to engage knowledgeably in these tasks, administrators must understand the language of clinical research, which is rooted in biostatistics. In this course, students learn applications and interpretations of biostatistics, including descriptive methodologies, commonly used statistical tests, confidence intervals, statistical inference and probability, analysis of variance, and considerations in powering a study. Students learn basic concepts of data collection and analysis using statistical computer software, such as SPSS. Applying principles of survey research, students also complete a written analysis of a survey design, through which they assess the method and validity as well as consider ways the survey could be improved.



♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
