Roundtables - Summer 2020

Discussions involving faculty outside of our field on a specific topic that is new to us. We typically read more than one paper for each meeting, and it is overall a way to be exposed to a new topic.  More specifically the process of developing biomarkers for prognostic diagnostic value using population based evidence will be reviewed.

Data Science Topics: Competing Risks - Spring 2020

Science Blitz - Spring 2020

Exercises on fast, efficient, on-your-feet interpretation of tables and figures. Trainees are given 2-3 minutes to study selected sections of a published paper: abstract with background and methods (not the results or discussion), tables, figures. they are asked to fill out the missing parts.
