MHRI-GHUCCTS Monthly Statistical Seminar Series 2022-2023
This free monthly webinar features Dr. Paul Kolm, Associate Director in the Department of Biostatistics and Biomedical Informatics at the MedStar Health Research Institute.

October 21 - Introduction to Statistics in Medical Research. We will discuss the use of statistics (and misuse) in medical research, what "statistical significance" means and what it does not mean.

November 18 - Comparative Effectiveness Analysis: Randomization and Pseudo-randomization. Randomized clinical trials are considered the gold standard of research design. Studies that are not randomized present a challenge to statistical analysis in that results can be biased due to confounding variables. We will look at methods that help to overcome bias.

December 16 - Linear and Nonlinear Regression Models. We will discuss regression models where the relationship between an outcome and one or more independent variables (covariates/predictors) is linear and where the relationship is nonlinear.

Future topics will be shared at a later time.
You can choose to attend one or more of the following webinars.
