This course serves as an introduction to more advanced topics in epidemiologic study design and biostatistical modeling with a focus on multivariate regression methods. It begins with the randomized clinical trial as a paradigm, and proceed to examine observational designs in depth, including prospective and retrospective cohorts, and those sampling from an underlying cohort (i.e. case-control).
