About

This online Statistics for Clinical Trials programme at University College London (UCL) will provide an excellent grounding in statistics for clinical trials. Frequentist as well as Bayesian statistics will be covered.

Overview

Statistics is a key tool in clinical trials, which are essential in discovering whether new healthcare interventions improve the lives of patients. Statistics is used at the design stage to compare possible designs, calculate the sample size, and at all stages of the trial until the final analysis and reporting of results. 

In the Statistics for Clinical Trials programme at University College London (UCL) you will learn about all types of trials, from early to late phase trials, and from simple to complex interventions. This will be both from a design and analysis perspective. In addition, you will learn to code in R and STATA.
