Biomedical Studies

A course is a part of higher education learning. Often a course will last for a single semester, but they can occasionally last as long as a school year. Courses fulfill many different roles including providing extra professional training or bridging the gap between different phases of study.

What is a course in biomedical science? A course in biomedical science focuses on molecular, cellular and systems neuroscience and biology. Biomedical science tends to be a hands-on subject that requires research and laboratory work, but also includes lectures in order to fully understand the scope of the subject. Students gain a technical knowledge of how the human body functions, which leads to an understanding of disease and the possible treatments available.

This type of course is beneficial because of the specialization it offers students. They can choose to learn about disease prevention, molecular structure of the human body and so much more. The hands-on experience is second to none, and will give students the skills necessary to succeed.

The cost of this type of course will vary greatly depending on the school that you attend. The cost will also depend on the country that the school is located in. Look at the courses available at the school of your choice in order to find out how much it will cost.

With a course in biomedical science you will be able to pursue a number of different careers. You will have the foundation necessary to continue with research, work in the pharmaceutical sector, further your education to join the healthcare field or even work in the biotechnology sector. You will have opportunities to work in the private, public or not-for-profit sectors as well.

Advanced Topics in Causal Research

This online medical course will address two important topics in causal epidemiologic research, namely confounding and effect modification. These topics will be discussed in the context of both etiologic research and observational intervention research. Effect modification and confounding are difficult concepts to understand and often mixed up. In this course, the theory, as well as the practical side of these issues, will be discussed.

One particular problem in causal research is that the observed relation between a determinant and an outcome is attributed to that determinant, while in fact the observed relation should be attributed to another variable. This form of bias often referred to as confounding, is central in this course. Other sources of bias, notably missing data and measurement error are not addressed in detail.... [-]

Prognostic Research

Prognosis is a key concept in patient care. However, although prognostic research is becoming increasingly important in clinical medicine, the actual methodology behind it is relatively underdeveloped.

The purpose of this course is to redress this imbalance. We will, therefore, discuss the principles and methods of non-experimental prognostic research, together with the practice of prognostic research in a clinical setting. The emphasis will be on learning about the design and statistical analysis of prognostic studies, the construction and estimation of prediction rules, the various approaches to validation, and the generalization of research results. You will also learn how to address the challenges of dealing with small data sets.... [-]
