The University of Colorado Medical School Education program (UME) and the Center for Innovative Design and Analysis have partnered to offer biostatistical and data science support to all medical students throughout the completion of their mentored scholarly activity. Through our consulting clinic program, we offer students one-on-one consultations with a CIDA graduate research assistant, during which we can assist with the following:
- Advise on study design
- Construct data collection tools
- Develop an analysis plan
- Learn how to implement your analysis and interpret your findings
- Review your analysis code, procedures, tables, and figures
We encourage students to attend as many clinics as are helpful throughout the duration of their project, and to come in the early phases of your study planning.
Before you attend a clinic, please review the links below on data format and guidelines.

MSA Small Grant Program
In addition to consultation clinics, medical students are eligible for a micro grant to support comprehensive statistical support on their research projects.
- A strong research plan with evidence that the study design was thoughtfully considered
- Demonstrated feasibility that data needed to answer your question can be collected
- Research questions requiring challenging statistical analyses (e.g. survival analysis, longitudinal data, etc.)
- Fall applications are due by August 5.
- Spring applications are due by January 5.
