BST 875 Statistical Collaboration Lab 3.0 Credits
This course prepares students to collaborate as biostatisticians for public health and biomedical projects with non-statisticians. Students will learn the practical aspects of statistical collaboration through various hands-on experiences that facilitate student’s understanding of the roles and responsibilities of biostatisticians in the context of collaborating with interdisciplinary scientists. Students will engage in stages of proposal development by refining quantitative aims for a grant proposal, developing the data management and analysis plans, and conducting the power analysis. They will also develop a scope of work and billing for the biostatistician's participation if/once the grant is funded. Students will be exposed to IRB, data use agreements, human protection training, and data privacy.
