This unit is for students who wish to do a second research project. This project must differ from the first project (BSTA5020) in terms of aims and statistical methods. The second project does not need to include multivariable regression modelling and could include, for example, conducting a simulation study, developing a new statistical method, designing a study or data management of large complex datasets. The aim of the unit is to give students practical experience in the application of the knowledge and skills learnt during the coursework program. Projects can be created or provided by the student's workplace or by a researcher, research group or institution.
Supervision by an experienced biostatistician
Students will be assessed by writing a portfolio which includes a reflection of their learning and a report on the work conducted for the project. The portfolio will be examined by two examiners, at least one of whom will be internal to the University of Sydney.
There are no essential readings for this unit.
