The first part of the course is to familiarize the participants with, and teach them to apply, the general linear model as it is commonly manifested in biomedical research. Specific applications include, but not limited to, multiple regression analysis, t-tests, one-way ANOVA, factorial ANOVA (balanced and unbalanced), ANCOVA and two-group discriminant function analysis.

The second part of the course is intended to familiarize participants with statistical procedures for analyzing categorical outcome data, a type of data often collected in health-related studies. Participants will have opportunities to use SAS to implement those statistical procedures and interpret the results of SAS outputs. In addition, this course will also place emphasis to certain degree on general statistical mechanisms underlying those statistical procedures.
