Statistics (STAT)

STAT 7000 Introduction to Biostatistics— 3 credits

The course seeks to provide students with a conceptual understanding of the most commonly utilized statistical methods in clinical research. A literacy course, the focus will be on the consumption, not the production, of statistics. That is, provided results (from published research articles and created examples) will be dissected, discussed, evaluated and interpreted. The focus will be when to use a given method, how to interpret the results, and how to communicate them to a broader audience. 

Prerequisite: Admission to a graduate nursing program.
