Biostatistics Research Project Part B - BCA816

This unit exposes students to real-life biostatistical problems, with the aim of consolidating concepts and theories learnt through the program and further developing their analytical skills. A project may include any of the following: primary or secondary analysis of health data; scientific manuscript for a peer-reviewed journal; design work on a study, eg clinical trial or health survey; statistical consulting project; evaluation of a data collection, data management or health information system from the perspective of statistical analysis of the data.

When more than one project is completed (ie, BCA815 and BCA816), the projects should not be of the same type and must involve the use of different statistical methods and concepts. At least one project should involve complex multivariable data analysis.
