STATS 773 focuses on the question of how to tell whether an intervention works. The course covers statistical, scientific, ethical, and procedural issues in the design, conduct, analysis, and reporting of randomized trials, primarily in clinical medicine and public health. Current standards for clinical trials are the result both of basic theoretical principles and of bitter practical experience, so both theory and substantial case studies will be important in the course. The course project is an independent reading project resulting in a short paper and a poster.
