The Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology provides support for all quantitative research activities within the Faculty of Health and Environmental Sciences.
Regular BIOSTATISTICS CLINICS are held weekly for the benefit of postgraduate students and academic researchers. The purpose is to provide you with an opportunity to talk to a biostatistician about your existing or planned research project. Statistical advice will focus particularly on the study design, data management and data analysis plans. New postgraduate students planning their research projects are particularly welcome and are encouraged to attend with their supervisor.
Clinics are held either on the North Campus or at AUT Millenium. Biostatistical support is also available on the South Campus by prior arrangement.
Interested attendees are encouraged to book a time slot (usually one hour).
For clinic times or to book a place, see the Biostatistics Clinic webpage, or contact them on email@example.com
Authoring an article is exciting and rewarding and is central to the reputation of the individual and of the University. Students intending to submit a PGR1 or PGR9 to the Postgraduate and Research Committee must also submit a signed Postgraduate Research Student Authorship Statement.
