Basic Biostatistics Concepts and Tools

Welcome

This material includes a set of instructional modules, each containing a set of slide images accompanied by a video clip version of the associated lecture. This material has been used for an online credit course as part of the requirements for a MPH degree from the School of Public Health at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in Birmingham, Alabama in the US. Previous exposure to biostatistics or a biostatistics course are not required for understanding this material.

Available on this webpage are the complete versions of the modules, including the video clips and the slide images as one choice or the slide images only as another choice. You will need a software program suitable for playing a video stream and the ability to hear the sound track with speakers or a headset. The modules are listed below as links. You are encouraged to start at the beginning and to progress through the modules one at a time.
