Full course description

THIS LISTING IS THE TBA SESSION OF THIS CLASS. To be notified when a session of this class is scheduled, or if you cannot attend the already scheduled course, please enroll in this class.

Class Description: This class will explore beginner data analytics for research with healthcare and health-related research study data. Specifically, this course will introduce gathering, cleaning, describing and analyzing data found in observational cohort studies or retrospective data analysis. Analysis will target three areas: forming a basic “Table 1” for a publishable manuscript, describing the available to a study team, and working with a statistician and drafting a statistical analysis plan (SAP).


Objectives: At the conclusion of this class, you should be able to: 


  • Recognize the need for appropriate human subjects data protection, data use agreements and internal review board approvals to analyze protected health information (PHI).
  • Define the purpose of the study data use by identifying the research study question and relate it to a proposed analytic plan
  • Explain how to collect research study data and describe sources of data for healthcare research
  • Use data analytic software (R, SPSS, SAS, SQL, STATA) to clean and analyze research data
  • List the steps to perform data analysis and produce a statistical analysis plan

REd Synchronous classes are taught by subject matter experts, and provide both fundamental and advanced skills training in flipped classroom format. These classes are offered live (currently, via Zoom), wherein participants will attend and participate in a 1-hour presentation and will be held responsible for completing any required pre-class and/or post-class activities outside the classroom (these activities can include: readings, videos, etc.). Participants can expect to spend up to 1-hour with these activities. The total duration for these synchronous classes is approximately 2-hours.
