• Description:

    This course provides a case-based introduction to universal notions encountered in quantitative clinical research. The focus is on conceptual understanding and intuition rather than specific techniques and calculations. Participants will gain insight into how to translate a clinical question into a statistical question - and how to translate the statistical answer back into a clinically meaningful result. Participants will also become more proficient at reading and assessing the quality of medical research papers that rely on statistics.


    Topics covered will include the following:

    1) Using statistics effectively in the student's research

    2) Effect measures and confidence intervals

    3) Hypothesis testing and P-values

Important information concerning PhD courses:
We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
