Course Project

During this module, you get the chance to demonstrate what you've learned by putting yourself in the shoes of biostatistical consultant on two different studies, one about self-administration of injectable contraception and one about medical appointment scheduling in Brazil. The two research teams have asked you to help them interpret previously published results in order to inform the planning of their own studies. If you've already taken other courses in this specialization, then this scenario will be familiar. ...
