The course builds on material from Intermediate Biostatistics I, introducing additional core biostatistical methods such as Poisson and negative binomial regression, random and mixed effects models, survival analysis techniques, and nonparametric methods. We will focus on exploratory data analysis, model building, model checking, and diagnostics, developing a flexible, critical approach to statistical data analysis.

Prerequisites: BST 560 [Min Grade: B]
In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
