This advanced online course answers common questions and addresses topics such as modeling, multiplicity adjustments, noninferiority, data mining, adaptive designs, Bayesian principles, and survival methods. This course will increase the level of statistical knowledge of nonstatisticians so that collaborative efforts of statisticians and nonstatisticians on clinical investigative teams can be improved.

Course Level: Advanced

Featured Topics 

  • Focuses on answering common questions and addressing topics such as:
    • modeling
    • multiplicity adjustments
    • non-inferiority
    • data mining
    • adaptive designs
    • Bayesian principles
    • survival methods
  • Use knowledge gained from the course to improve your contribution to clinical investigative teams
  • Interactive discussions and activities to practice the concepts
  • Applying advanced statistics to designing studies

Who Should Attend 

  • Those who have completed Clinical Statistics for Nonstatisticians
  • Clinical research professionals
