STATISTICAL METHODS IN MEDICINE AND PUBLIC HEALTH

This year our Summer School is back on the road, with a three-day program in Melbourne followed by a two-day program in Sydney. Each program is designed to provide an intensive introduction to a range of intermediate to advanced statistical methods that are important in modern health research. The courses will include extensive discussion of practical examples and hands-on training in relevant statistical software using the Stata and R packages.


Who should attend?

Prerequisite knowledge for this workshop is a sound understanding of epidemiological and statistical concepts including multivariable regression models, and knowledge of either Stata or R.
