Awesome! It's an interesting course providing useful knowledge for reading journals. Though I had completed biostatics in school, this course still help me clarify some basic but important ideas. Thank you very much for preparing this good course.

This is a very important course for any medical professional who is using evidence-based medicine in their professional career. The course goes over many of the basic statistical concepts you encounter in the majority of clinical research papers published today. You might find it helpful that the course utilizes a handful of real and relevant scientific papers from major medical journals (like New England Journal of Medicine) to highlight key statistical concepts. I also like that it goes over how the various calculations are performed and even utilizes R Commander to demonstrate how it's computed, no programming required.
