Statistics in clinical trials training package (1 to 3) - Online Course
The course is designed to familiarize the student with the basics up to the advanced use of the concepts of statistics. The package of 3 trainings allows you to quickly learn from A to Z issues related to clinical trials.
From basic to advanced
Part 1 of the training:
You will master topics such as: measurement levels, measures of central tendency and dispersion, concepts of inference, basic statistical tests and correlations. Each of the statistical issues is also presented in terms of practical calculations in RStudio
Part 2 of the training:
The second part of the course covers the most widely used assays and models in clinical trials, including ANCOVA, logistic regression, and z-test, in more detail. Each of the statistical issues is also presented in terms of practical calculations in RStudio.
Part 3 of the training:
The third part of the course covers in more detail the most commonly used assays and models in clinical trials, including Kaplan-Meier curves, the Cox model, linear mixed-effect models, and various sample size estimation methods for such a study. Each of the statistical issues is also presented in terms of practical calculations in RStudio. We also present the directions in which modern clinical research is heading.

Frequently Asked Questions What kind of training do you offer?
Training in the area of statistics and related sciences, including online courses in statistics in clinical trials, basics of statistics and statistical tests.
What is the scope of training in statistical analysis?
During the training in statistical analysis, we will reflect on why simple analyzes cause so many difficulties, we will discuss the issue of the new statistical generation in clinical trials and we will apply the acquired knowledge regarding statistical analysis in practice - we will create a study protocol.
Who is the training in medical statistics intended for?
For practitioners dealing with clinical trials on a daily basis and for scientists who collect data from various types of research in their work.
What does the trainee get?
The training is completed with a certificate issued by the Biostat Research and Development Center. The participant of the training will enrich his knowledge in the field of the basics of statistical analysis, gain the ability to independently analyze and interpret research results.
