Teaching

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,

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.
