Training Resources

In this section you can view sets of videos representing two courses developed in conjunction with our Medical Education Partnership Initiative (MEPI) with the University of Botswana, The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the University of Pennslyvania School of Medicine. The partnership was funded by the US Government and ran from 2010 to 2015. These courses are not official courses of any of these three institutions, but rather meant for those in medical training at these or any institution, who desire a self-paced course to learn or “brush up” on either biostatistical or basic math skills. Both of these skills are important in any clinical or epidemiological research.
