The Biostatistics Research Group teach on a number of courses within the University. Our main teaching responsibilities is on delivery of the MSc Medical Statistics, a course that has been running for over 30 years. We currently receive funding for studentships; see the course webpages for further details of the course and how to apply.
Over the last few years we also contributed to other courses within the University including,
- MSc Diabetes
- MSc Quality and Safety in Healthcare
- MRes. Applied Health Research
- BSc Biological Sciences
- iBSc Human Behaviour
- iMSc Medical Research
- MSc Molecular Pathology and the Therapeutics of Cancer
As part of our mission to transfer novel methodology and best statistical practice into applied research, we teach a number of external courses. For example, over the last few years we have delivered courses on:
- Population-based cancer survival analysis
- Bayesian Evidence Synthesis for Decision Modelling
- Indirect and mixed treatment comparisons (Network meta-analysis)
- Using simulation studies to evaluate statistical methods
- Flexible parametric survival models in epidemiology
- Parametric competing risks and multistate models
- Joint modelling of longitudinal and survival data
- Age Period Cohort modelling using population-based cancer data
- Feasibility issues relating to studies of a stepped wedge design
- Evidence synthesis of diagnostic test accuracy for decision making
- Meta-Analysis: Exploring Heterogeneity in Populations, Settings, Interventions and Outcome Measures
- Bayesian multivariate meta-analysis with application to surrogate endpoint evaluation and extensions to multivariate network meta-analysis.
Please get in contact if you are interested in attending or commissioning any of these.
