Department of Statistical Science
The Department of Statistical Science has played a major role in the development of the subject ever since its foundation in 1911 as the Department of Applied Statistics.
Registration is now open for ‘Practical Statistics for Medical Research’, a four day training course in study design and statistical methods run by the Biostatistics group in the Department of Statistical Science. The course is aimed at healthcare professionals or researchers who wish to learn more about the basic principles of quantitative research methods and their application in medical science. Material covered is at an intermediate level and does not assume any deep understanding of statistical terms or concepts. This course is accredited with 21 CPD points from the Royal College of Physicians. More...
