Biostatistics Research Project Part B - BSTA5021

Year - 2018

This unit is for master's students who wish to do two workplace projects and are also doing BSTA5020. The aim of the unit is to give master's students practical experience, usually in workplace settings, in the application of knowledge and skills learnt during the coursework of the master's program. Students will provide evidence of having met this goal by presenting a portfolio made up of a preface and two project reports. The projects should not all be of the same type and must involve the use of different statistical methods and concepts. At least one project should involve complex multivariable analysis of data. Students should enrol in both Workplace Project Portfolio A and Workplace Project Portfolio Part B, either in semesters 1 and 2 respectively, or both in the same semester.

Classes
Supervision by an experienced biostatistician
