HSCI 190 Introduction to Statistics for the Health Sciences
This course is designed to introduce students to basic statistical concepts and techniques and provide them with practical skills for applying statistics to health sciences research. This includes data visualization, probability distributions, descriptive statistics, hypothesis testing, and parameter estimation. Specific techniques such as t-tests, correlations, analysis of variance, and regression analyses will also be covered. Throughout the course, real data will be used to guide learning. Students will also discuss and practice how to effectively interpret and report statistical findings within the health sciences. To be successful in the course assessments, students will need to progressively build their skills and apply the course knowledge to 1) select appropriate statistical tests based on the research question and data, 2) interpret findings from descriptive and statistical analyses, and 3) communicate the results effectively.
