HSC 2500 - Biostatistics


Prerequisite(s): HSC 2010 ; HSC 2020 ; MA 1030 .
Biostatistics is designed to introduce students to methods used to perform hypothesis testing in biomedical and clinical applications. This course will emphasize the rationale for using statistical testing in biomedical and clinical data collection and evaluation, and the role that statistics play as an objective tool to verify significant differences in biomedical experimental results. While there are some computational elements to this course, students will be assessed on their knowledge of the theory behind biostatistical concepts and commonly used statistical concepts and tests that are used in actual biomedical and clinical studies. These studies range from basic research to population-based epidemiological studies. Students will be introduced to using computational statistical packages to use in basic data manipulation and analysis. Credit(s): 3
