Online Course in Technology Studies in Netherlands
During this online course, you will learn to use statistical methods to study the association between (multiple) determinants and the occurrence of an outcome event. [+]
During this online course, you will learn to use statistical methods to study the association between (multiple) determinants and the occurrence of an outcome event. The course will begin with an introduction to likelihood theory, using simple examples and a minimum of mathematics. You will then move to learning about the most important regression models used in medical research. These include logistic regression, Poisson regression, analysis of `event history´ data, and the Cox proportional hazards regression model. In addition, you will become familiar with model validation and regression diagnostics, as well as with the basic principles of resampling methods and longitudinal data analysis. The course is aimed at professionals who are interested in to learn more about statistics for medical research. However, a medical education is not a requirement to successfully participate in this course.... [-]

This online medical course, offered by the MSc Epidemiology program of the UMC Utrecht and Utrecht University, provides an understanding of the basic applications of biostatistics in the analysis of medical research data.
Topics are types of data, location and variability measures, samples and populations, distributions, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, comparing two or more means or proportions (parametric and non-parametric methods), and relationships between two variables (correlation, simple linear regression). The course also includes an extensive discussion of the multiple linear regression models. This is an ideal course for anyone who wishes to further his medical education by getting a better understanding of data analysis.... [-]
