Synopsis:

The course focuses on methods of statistical analysis designed primarily for medical research and clinical evaluation of medical devices. Students will be introduced to clinical research methodology, clinical study design and then to commonly used methods of processing and testing clinical data.

Requirements:

Requirements for the assessment:

1. Required attendance in seminars (max. 2 absences).

2. The student is required to be prepared for seminars in advance, deliver obligatory homework, and successfully pass the entrance test in the beginning of each seminar, student can be excluded from the particular seminar and considered absent, if he fails in these duties.

3. Student is required to pass the seminar test at the level of at least 50%

Requirements for the exam:

1. Passing the assessment.

The exam is oral, where the student draws on questions covering the topics of lectures. In order for a student to be admitted to the oral exam, they must have the requirements of assessment and write the exam test consisting of numerous examples for min. 50%

Syllabus of lectures:
