Johns Hopkins University is offering an online course called "Mathematical Biostatistics Boot Camp 1". This 7-week-long course will commence from 3rd March, 2014. You can earn a verified certificate at the end of the course.
About the Course:
Statistics is a thriving discipline that provides the fundamental language of all empirical research. Biostatistics is simply the field of statistics applied in the biomedical sciences.
This course puts forward key mathematical and statistical topics to help students understand biostatistics at a deeper level. After completing this course, students will have a basic level of understanding of the goals, assumptions, benefits and negatives of probability modeling in the medical sciences. This understanding will be invaluable when approaching new statistical topics and will provide students with a framework and foundation for future self learning.
Topics include probability, random variables, distributions, expectations, variances, independence, conditional probabilities, likelihood and some basic inferences based on confidence intervals.
Brian Caffo will be the course instructor.
The course will have a workload of 3-5 hours of work / week.
It will be taught in English and the subtitles will be available in English.
