2020 Pediatric Biostatistics Course Registration

2020 Biostats

Dear Fellows and Residents,

As part of the fellowship education series, the Committee on Fellowship Education is pleased to once again offer the pediatric focused course, Biostatistics for Clinicians.  This six week long course will be facilitated by Kristine Knuti-Rodrigues, MD, MPH, Associate Professor Pediatrics.  

Course Objectives:

  • Develop your ability to be a critical consumer of the literature
  • Enhance your ability to discuss statistical issues about your research
  • Develop familiarity with many commonly used statistical methods
  • Determine when you should seek assistance from a statistician


Who can take this course?

This course is primarily intended for 2nd and 3rd year Department of Pediatrics fellows as part of the comprehensive fellowship educational program.  In some individual cases, enrollment in this course may be unnecessary because of participation in other programs that include biostatistics training; however, those decisions should be made with the approval of the fellow’s training program director.  We can accommodate additional participants, including junior faculty members, residents and trainees from outside of the Department of Pediatrics, when space is available. 


When will this course occur?

This course will be held from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm on six Monday evenings in the School Medicine ED2 South Building (Room 2305), which is located on the 2nd floor of the ED2 South Building
