Top Online Courses in Biomedical Studies 2019

One of the major areas of inquiry in biomedical science is in the study of infectious diseases and their biological triggers. Once a cause of a disease is known, research into what can prevent or lessen its effects can potentially help save many lives.

Since all classes are online, students will not have to appear at classes. Schedules may not be as stringent when taking lessons online. Students can work on and carry out assignments when they are ready and at their personal pace. In several online degree courses, students are not expected to take elective classes unless needed by their major. This allows students to zero in on and study particularly what they need to learn for their business. For many students who have a passion for to learn information relevant to their major, online degree programs work excellent as this approach will save time and aid students gain their degree faster.

Everything we do in healthcare has to be discovered and thoroughly tested before it can be put into practice. In this course, you will explore clinical research – its challenges and its huge benefits to modern healthcare. You will work through case studies and examine how research contributes to the treatment of major diseases, such as cancer and dementia, examining the process of conducting research and the ethical questions raised. You will learn how members of a research team, academics and participants in clinical research all contribute to this process of discovery.

What topics will you cover? The fundamental principles of the scientific process, and their importance in ensuring that clinical research delivers accurate information and answers. The origins of clinical trials, and how an understanding of how to conduct clinical research has developed over time. How modern clinical trials are conducted, the importance of minimising bias, and the role of techniques such as randomisation and control, and placebos and blinding. The impact of the digital revolution and big data on how clinical trials are conducted, and the opportunities and challenges these present. The importance of ensuring that clinical research is ethical and the key principles that are essential to ensuring that clinical trials are set up and conducted in an ethically sound manner.

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.... [-]
