Please Note:
As of last year, we reduced our scheduling format from 2-weeks to 1-week.  With the success of our new format, we will continue to offer the intensive one-week format.  The 2018 enrollees reported favorably regarding the new scheduling.  We will continue to hold small groups, where learners can get individualized feedback on their research proposals. With that, we recently polled course alumni from 2015-2017 and many report, because of this experience; they have used their course abstracts for grant submission, manuscript, presentation, and publication.

Course Learning Objectives for Faculty, Staff & Fellows:
Define a research question. Understand the steps involved in conducting clinical research. Review and evaluate the main study designs used in clinical research: case-control, cohort, clinical trials, cross-sectional, met-analyses. Understand the basis of statistical analyses of clinical research studies. Understand the methodological basis of diagnostic and prognostic testing. Prepare and review a research project.  Course materials and homework exercises will be provided electronically. Student evaluations are based on paired pre- and post-test of knowledge base.
