BSRB Seminar Rooms, 1st floor

Have you forgotten most of your stats training? Never understood it in the first place? Do you skip over the statistics sections when reading a journal article? Do you wish you could converse more effectively with your statistician?

This seminar is designed for faculty who desire a reintroduction to basic statistical concepts for clinically-focused research. Presented in plain English with many illustrations, this session will cover foundational statistical concepts, including:  p-value, effect size, confidence intervals, sample size and power, and some common statistical tests. Whatever your background, this gentle reintroduction will increase your comfort and confidence when it comes to statistics. 

Breakfast will be provided.
