Description

The LUMC course ‘Basic Methods and Reasoning in Biostatistics’ covers the fundamental toolbox of biostatistical methods plus a solid methodological basis to properly interpret statistical results. The course is a mandatory part of the LUMC Graduate School Program and a prerequisite for any of the advanced biostatistical courses offered by the LUMC. This is a basic course, targeted at a wide audience. The course is given during a single week - from 13 - 17 September (+ preparation in the two weeks before), followed by a final examination on the next Tuesday.


In the e-learning part of the course, we will cover the basic methods of data description and statistical inference (t-test, one-way ANOVA and their non-parametric counterparts, chi-square test, correlation and simple linear regression, logistic regression, introduction to survival analysis and introduction to repeated measurements). For students who are new to data analysis, the e-learning offers step-by-step guidance on how to perform these procedures in SPSS. Students who are used to working with R, can do the exercises in R instead of SPSS. Students who have already studied the e-learning topics in previous courses can use the e-learning as a refresher, work through the modules more quickly and skip exercises if wanted.


The lectures cover the 'Reasoning' part of the course. Three lectures are mandatory: Study design, Good statistical practice and Multiple testing. Moreover, we offer two elective lectures: for participants interested on this topic, we offer an advanced elective lecture on modern prediction techniques. Also, since many of the examples during the course stem from clinical research, one elective lecture dedicated to pre-clinical research is offered.


In the short videos (about 10 minutes each), several experts discuss further on the 'reasoning' topics. Some of the topics of the short videos overlap with the topics covered in the morning lectures (study design, p-hacking and good statistical practice) and some topics such as different forms of bias, sample size calculation, pros and cons of p-values are only covered by the short videos.
