Learn biostatistics through courses offered by the Department of Biostatistics and Informatics in the Colorado School of Public Health, and the Biostatistics Epidemiology and Research Design (BERD) Program of the CCTSI. In addition, our CIDA biostatisticians have also offered short seminars, lectures and tutorials on basic statistics to our clients.

Courses in Biostatistics and Informatics

The Department of Biostatistics and Informatics offers an introductory applied statistics sequence designed for those without a calculus background and requires minimal calculations.

  • Bios6601 - Applied Biostatistics I: descriptive statistics and enough basic analysis to create a Table 1 for a scientific paper.
  • Bios6602 - Applied Biostatistics II: extends the basic principles of descriptive and inferential statistics to modeling more complex relationships using basic regression analyses.
  • More in-depth training is also taught in the MS biostatistics graduate courses. They require calculus and cover the theory of the methods in addition to the application.
  • Other applied courses are offered in longitudinal analysis, genetics/genomics analysis, etc.
