About this Class

In partnership with the NIH Clinical Center's Biostatistics and Clinical Epidemiology Service (BCES), the NIH Library is offering classes geared to cover general concepts behind statistics and epidemiology. This four-part lecture series will help participants better understand statistical and epidemiological features in biomedical research, interpret results and findings, design and prepare studies, and understand/critically review the results in published literature.

Part 1 will address fundamental statistical concepts including hypothesis testing, p-values and confidence intervals, types of data and their distributional importance, and bias and confounding. During the class, time will be devoted to questions from attendees and references will be provided for in-depth self-study.

Although you may attend any part of this series by itself, attending all four parts will provide a more comprehensive review of important statistical and epidemiological considerations that build on each other. You must register separately for each part of this class series.
