In the courses 'Introduction to Biomedical Sciences' and 'Research in Biomedical Sciences' we laid the emphasis on generating structural statistical knowledge and skills in statistical reasoning. Statistics and Methodology is a course that broadens and especially deepens this knowledge, in which the statistical reasoning, as in the critical evaluation of methods and techniques, is placed central. Broadening knowledge will take place in the first part of the course, with a selection of new techniques like analysis of variance and (multiple) regression. In-depth elements will include power and methodological (in-)dependence of data, an introduction of the philosophical background of classical statistics, and the subjects systematic review and meta-analysis. Beyond this, the student will skill him/herself in the analysis and evaluation of (scientific) reasoning. Many subjects will be illustrated based on publications from the primary scientific literature. Note: In july 2019 a new examinator will be appointed for this course. Depending on this examinators choice, this course does, or does not contain scientific reasoning. This implies that the last attainment level presented hereunder might, or might not be kept.

Contact hours listed under a course description may vary due to the combination of lecture-based and independent work required for each course therefore, CEA's recommended credits are based on the ECTS credits assigned by VU Amsterdam. 1 ECTS equals 28 contact hours assigned by VU Amsterdam.
