MasterClass in Biostatistics and Epidemiology to practice Evidence-Based Veterinary Medicine, 23rd – 25th of April, 2020 at Ecole Nationale Vétérinaire d’Alfort

Maximum number of participants: 20.

OVERALL ORGANIZATION OF THE MASTERCLASS
This 3-day MasterClass comprises lectures (during mornings) and practicals (during afternoons). Practicals will be based on results presented in papers published in international per-reviewed veterinary journals.

OVERALL OBJECTIVES OF THE MASTERCLASS
At the end of the 3-day session, participants will be able to analyse the consistency between the statistical methods used to obtain the results of published studies, their results, and the clinical message(s) based on these results. The MasterClass will focus on comparative studies only (case-control studies, cohort studies, clinical trials) in order to make causal inference. To reach this objective, participants will be able to understand the statistical analyses performed by scientists and to interpret the statistical results. There will not be any data manipulation, since performing data analyses is not the objective of this MasterClass.

TARGET AUDIENCE
Veterinary residents, PhD students, academic staff, and veterinary surgeons from private companies or clinics involved in clinical veterinary research. Non veterinarians are also welcome to the MasterClass.

Maximum number of participants: 20.
