In the Statistics with Medical Applications programme from University of Sheffield , you’ll develop a detailed working knowledge of essential statistical techniques and concepts, including linear and generalised linear modelling, Bayesian statistics and computational methods and build up your programming and data analysis skills using the statistical computing software R.
- You’ll study how these skills are applied in clinical trials and choose from a range of optional modules that focus on the role of statistics in other areas of medicine, such as epidemiology and evaluating healthcare interventions.
- There are also optional modules on other topics in statistics, including time series analysis and machine learning.
This course is accredited by the Royal Statistical Society.
