This course is well-designed, well-paced and well-structured. The study examples described in this course really help you understand the importance of design and interpretation of clinical trials.

One of the best online courses I have taken so far at Coursera. Very helpful if you are new to the field and helps you to understand and interpret clinical data. I highly recommend this course.

From the lesson
Randomization and Masking
This week we discuss two key design features of randomized clinical trials used to protect against bias, randomization and masking.
