Biostatistics and Epidemiology
To provide a forum for discussion of statistical issues, questions and techniques that arise during the design and analysis of epidemiological or health services research data.
We meet quarterly on a biostatistical topic or question of interest to outcomes and health services research. Discussions are typically lead by one or two people and may involve introduction to statistical topics or techniques, explanation of computer code in particular statistical packages for solving specific questions, case studies or examples or data analysis techniques, and any topic of interest for continuing education and training in biostatistics.
