Free online course on statistics and medicine starts today

Free online course on statistics and medicine starts today

Need a little statistics to spice up your summer? As a reminder, today’s the start of a nine-week online class taught by Stanford’s Kristin Sainani, PhD. “Statistics in Medicine” is a free “MOOC” (or, massive open online course) that, as my colleague described last month, “aims to provide students with a foundational understanding of probability and statistics, teaching them the skills required to critically evaluate statistics in medical studies. It also shows students how to analyze and avoid common statistical pitfalls with their own research data.”

This week’s topic is “descriptive statistics and looking at data;” you can join the class through its webpage.
