BCHS 7353 - FUNDAMENTALS OF MULTI-LEVEL DESIGN AND ANALYSIS

[3 Credits]
This course will familiarize students with the conceptual basis for the design, conduct, and analysis of multilevel studies. Students will integrate and apply concepts learned in previous Biostatistics and methods courses as they relate to multilevel studies. Using a combination of lectures/seminars, and discussions, the student will develop a basic understanding of how key social factors shape the distribution of health and disease in the general population. The course will be taught as a seminar and will be heavily literature-based. Students will be expected to participate in discussions, as well as lead the presentation of certain topics. Students will be expected to perform guided analyses of provided data-sets, with the emphasis on interpretation of results. Students are expected to be familiar enough with SAS to run provided analysis programs. Prerequisites BIOS 6100, BIOS 6102 or equivalent
