HEAL 421 - Introduction to Biostatistics


(4 hours) Prerequisites: Math 105 or higher and HEAL 100. Corequisite: HEAL 421L. Statistical methods for description and analysis provide investigators in the health sciences with useful tools for making sense from data. The pervasiveness of statistics in the health sciences has led to increased recognition that statistical literacy-a familiarity with the goals and methods of statistics-should be a basic component of a well-rounded educational program. This course provides an introduction to the analysis of data in the health sciences using classification of data, measures of central tendency, variability, probability, hypothesis testing, comparison of means in one or more samples, correlation, simple regression, and non-parametric tests. Examples of health science concepts and data will be used to apply these techniques.
