This course contains two major components: biostatistics and clinical trial design. The course covers inferential statistics including hypothesis testing, and various parametric and non-parametric statistical tests relevant to the field of biomedical sciences. The course also covers the basic principles for designing and reporting a clinical trial. Overall, the students will learn to appropriately apply and evaluate biostatistical tests and build a foundation for designing a clinical trial. The course also includes Interprofessional Education (IPE)/Problem Based Learning (PBL) which will allow students to develop self-directed, lifelong learning. These collaborative exercises with the University of California Riverside (UCR) School of Medicine, Riverside Community College (RCC) School of Nursing and Claremont Graduate University (CGU) Public Health students will help the development of verbal and writing skills to allow effective communications with health professionals. Students will learn to work as a group to solve problems in an interprofessional manner discussing specific patient cases. A series of individual and group assignments will afford the student to apply skills learned in PHAR 330, 340, and 341. (Last offered in Spring 2020 due to curricular revision).
