BIOE 823 - Randomized Clinical Trials

Cr Hrs: 3 (48-0)

This course will allow the student to understand and analyze the many critical facets of the most precise design for clinical studies in humans: randomized clinical trials. Using a case-based approach, students will learn the importance of precise hypothesis description, selection of an at risk cohort for study, and the power of randomization in helping balance the study groups on a number of known and unknown confounding factors. Important issues with regard to subject recruitment, patient management, and data quality control will be emphasized. Students will learn to perform their own sample size calculations and use actual statistical packages to outline real clinical trial results data.
