SSPH+ PhD Program in Public Health / Swiss Tropical - and Public Health - Institute (Swiss TPH)
26.03.2012 - 28.03.2012  Bern, Switzerland
The Bayesian approach to medical research offers a flexible framework allowing for the incorporation of new information and evidence as it accrues. Although Bayesian statistics is often perceived and discussed as controversial, this course is not about controversies, but about pragmatic ways of integrating available information in a coherent fashion. The course is building on applied problems and exercises that require the participants to bring their own portable computer.
