BSTA 512 Linear Models

Instructor(s): Thuan Nguyen, PhD

Course Description This course is the second course in the required sequence for Biostatistics Certificate Program and the Epi/Biostat track in the Oregon MPH program. This course expands on the analyses techniques presented in BSTA 511. In particular, we focus on multiple regression analysis and various analysis of variance techniques ending with a conceptual overview of techniques for correlated continuous outcomes (i.e., random effects and repeated measures). Classes consist of lecture, examples of data analysis and Stata and/or R computer application techniques. Written homework assignments and data analysis projects are used to assist in mastery of the analysis methods.
