CTU Bern (Clinical Trials Unit)

Introduction to Stata

Description

Stata is intensively used in the medical science, both for statistical analyses and for supporting data managers and monitors. In this workshop we will learn how to use Stata step-by-step: the looks, basics, data import/export, labelling/formatting, data manipulation, good practices, help, essential statistics.

It is essential that each participant brings her/his own lap-top with Stata version 13 or 14 installed. 

In order to prepare well and to benefit the most of the course it is obligatory to have studied the online Stata Learning Modules; so the course will only refresh what you learned online, or cover what you did not completely understand using these online modules (Fundamentals to Intermediate Data Management)

Target audience

The course is open and provided free of charge for clinical researchers of the Inselspital Bern and the staff of the Medical Faculty of the University of Bern.
