If you’ve ever skipped over`the results section of a medical paper because terms like “confidence interval” or “p-value” go over your head, then you’re in the right place. You may be a clinical practitioner reading research articles to keep up-to-date with developments in your field or a medical student wondering how to approach your own research. Greater confidence in understanding statistical analysis and the results can benefit both working professionals and those undertaking research themselves.

TOP REVIEWS FROM UNDERSTANDING CLINICAL RESEARCH: BEHIND THE STATISTICS
It is very a useful course. However,sometimes, it is required statistical background or one must have external statistical references in understanding some mathematical details behind it.
Awesome! Anyone trying to improve their knowledge of statistics will definitely get that here. The lectures are clear, informative and really easy to understand. Would definitely recommend!
i found the course very helpful and informative and i t helps to critically read and interpret research papers. my only take on it is that there was no responses to questions that i asked the lecturer
Prior to this course I had little introduction to the clinical trials domain. Found this course to be extremely helpful in my learning. Thanks for the design and content of the course.
