Admitted to a postgraduate program in animal science, biology, veterinary medicine, food science, nutrition, nursing, bioinformatics or similar subjects, or to a residency program in veterinary science. The basic models lectured in an introduction course in medical statistics are assumed knowledge.
The overall objective of the course is to train students to plan and perform suitable statistical analysis of own data, and to have a general understanding of the basic principles for statistical analysis of data from clinical studies and thereby be able to evaluate results presented also in other studies.
After completing the course the student should be able to:
- Build a statistical model to answer the aim of the student’s study
- Plan and perform statistical analysis of own data, e.g.:
- Parametric and non‐parametric estimation
- Non‐parametric and parametric ANOVA models, correlation and regression analysis
- Sample size calculation
- Use JMP software
- Evaluate, criticize and present statistical results
This is a practical course in statistical analysis of own data or databases available from previous performed studies. JMP/SAS will be the basic software for statistical analysis.
The course covers one week of studies (1.5 ECTS), including lectures, discussions, assignments and student presentations. The students are scheduled full days Monday‐Friday and attendance is
compulsory. An attendance record of at least 80% is required to pass this course. No video link is provided since discussions and other team efforts are important parts of the curriculum.
Formats and requirements for examination
