MSA Consulting Clinics

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 an​d interpret your findings
  • Review your analysis code, procedures, tables, and figures 

We encourage students to attend as many clinics as are helpful thro​ughout 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.
