Help! Statistics! Lunchtime Lectures

Dear researcherss

Help! Statistics! Lunchtime Lectures

A general knowledge of statistics is essential in medical research: for the planning of a study or a trial, the analysis of data, interpretation of research results, writing manuscripts, reading and understanding research literature or answering reviewer requests, a basic understanding of statistics is a requirement.

The Unit of Medical Statistics and Decision Making at the UMCG (Department of Epidemiology) offers a series of lectures on these basic concepts of statistics in medical sciences.  In this series of lectures, we will  address frequently used statistical methods and questions in a manageable timeframe for all researchers at the UMCG. The focus will be on Life-course epidemiology-related themes. Every two months, an interesting statistical topic will be presented in 60 minutes, including 15 minutes for questions.

The lectures  are open to everybody who is interested, no knowledge of advanced statistics is required.

Lectures take place every other month, on the second Tuesday, 12.00-13.00 hrs
