Klopper MD is a great teacher. There are other courses from another top universities about this topic, but I think this is my favourite. This the shortest in duration and most comprehensive among all.
Great course!! it is gonna provide you a good foundation in clinical studies if you want to start your career in clinical research! Clear explanation and comprehensive case study! highly recommended!

The course content was good but I wished for a little more hands on experience with the statistics. I particularly like the optional excel lessons and wish there were more of those. Perhaps add exercises in excel or other spreadsheet software to reinforce the learning?

Very good overview of the basics clinical study design and data analysis. I feel that sections 5 and 6 were dealt with a little cursorily with very brief mentions of the different types of statistical analyses. That's why I rated the course 4 stars instead of 5.
par Erum S•
It is a very helping course and made maximally convenient in terms of time management. Sessions were both at the beginners level in early weeks but became little bit complicated later well this is the part of the study overall good helping station for us.
par Kathryn M•
Great intro or review for healthcare workers. A little more info and more examples would have been appreciated for all the statistical tests in week 5. Paired t-test is not mentioned in the notes or videos and yet appears in a number of the quizzes.
par Jessica D•
Really good course for an introduction to statistics in medical field. Wished there was a bit more visual representations when explaining p-values and areas under the curves, and a bit more explanations on SE, CI's interpretation etc.
par Dennis S•
Dr Klopper is clear in his explanations and has a good grasp of statistics. This course really summarizes the information on statistical tests, but helps introduce you to the terminology and overall meaning of medical studies.

I really like this course. Many of the concepts in the course, I previously didn't understand. But now I know them. I think if they will add some mathematical formula also. then I think this is the best course on Coursera.
Prof Juan Klopper was good with his explanations and provided examples for us to understand. This course truthfully taught the concepts involved in clinical research without having to memorize the mathematical formulas.
par Katharina G•
was a really good course, I have wished to learn more details about statistical tests such as cox regression, fine and gray model, etc., but this would have made the course even longer. Thank you for that great course!
par Kaela H•
Very impressed with the platform, and did a great job with high-level explanation of clinical practice based statistics. Will definitely make me more confident in interepreting research articles I read from now on.
par Tarek N•
i found the course very helpful and informative and i t helps to critically read and interpret research papers. my only take on it is that there was no responses to questions that i asked the lecturer
par Nadia M•
It was very complete and medical clinical research oriented. I wish it could give you some recommended external material to study, so you can read during the week to further knowledge.
par Ayoub e K•
Really helped me grasp the ideas behind the statistics we see in everyday scientific articles. Great explanations and simplistic walkthroughs through statistic examples. Thank you!
par Jennifer P•
If it were just a little longer it would work to count as the Clinical Research requirement for the the IBLCE exam. I learned a lot but that was the real reason I took the class!
par Dr. I A•
This is a excellent first step in learning the basics of clinical research. I strongly recommend beginners like me to take this course before doing your own research work.
par Rogers L L•
I recommend to everyone in clinical research and doctors who a constant reading research articles, it a great way to understand how the results were obtain
par Rephaim M•
Good course, most of the concepts were taught well. It enabled me to develop a more intuitive understanding of clinical research and statistical concepts used
par Karthik K•
Its a good course for beginners, explained in a simple, understandable manner. The assignments and quiz exercises give authentic self feedback for learners.
par parvin r•
the instructor sometimes speaks vaguely and it makes it hard to understand. It was better if we could ask our questions from the instructor himself.
par Shweta K•
A good course to get a basic understanding of the statistical analysis used in clinical research. Relevant content and well explained videos.
par Saimon S•
I got lost in the non-parametric tests section (Mann-Whitney-U and the rest).
However, the p-value explanation was spot on. Thank you.
par M. A R•
It was really helpful to understand the clinical research in better way. The short length but succinct lectures were just amazing!
par Andrea M•
This course gives general informations about the medical statistics.
It's easy to follow and I found it very useful
par Digamber C•
Very easy to understand, very very informative.
One thing is missing that non of the videos' were downloadable.
par Aarzoo S•
what a beautiful journey with lots of research article to give brief detail about the statstics and analysis
