CEBU Research Methods courses

Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics Unit (CEBU) offers a core sequence of research methods courses.

The sequence begins with Designing Your Research Study, which focuses on developing and clarifying the research question (with the understanding that most questions have a fundamentally causal nature), followed by Introduction to Biostatistics, which covers the key underlying concepts and most commonly used methods of statistics, and concluding with Observational Studies: Modern Concepts and Analytic Methods, which focusses on the challenges of causal inference in observational (non-randomised) studies, with an introduction to regression methods.

It is strongly recommended that the three courses be taken in sequence, because the later ones assume familiarity with concepts, language and techniques introduced earlier.
