Course Overview

Statistics can generally be defined as a
branch of mathematics concerned with
drawing inferences from numerical data
based on probability theory. Medical
Statistics deals with the application of
statistical principles and methods
required in the research and
management of health related studies.
Currently there is demand for qualified
professionals to serve in the fields of
national health systems, the
pharmaceutical industry, and in
research which is important to the
development of a country. Due to
changing trends in the patterns of
disease occurrence and resistance to the
available means of management, there is
need for trained health statisticians who
are able to gather and utilize the
available information to interpret and
predict events for purposes of
management and control of diseases.
The MSc. in Medical Statistics course
aims at training such personnel by
equipping them with the relevant
knowledge of theoretical and practical
aspects of statistics and their
applications in health research.
