Hosmer Workshops

Series: Workshop
Location: Leon Levy Cancer Center 2951
Presenter: David Hosmer PhD, UMass Amherst

This is a TWO-DAY event, March 16 and 17, 8:30am to 4:30pm.

Dr David Hosmer from the University of Massachusetts will be leading two one-day workshops (one day on logistic regression, one day on survival analysis) to be held on campus Friday Mar 16 and Saturday Mar 17th.  Dr Hosmer is a renewed lecturer, a recognized expert in the subject matter, and the author of well known introductory texts on these topics. The workshops will provide you the background to apply standard biostatistical models such as logistic regression and the Cox proportional hazards model in addition to learning a variety of fundamental tools in each area such as Kaplan-Meier estimation of survival distributions and the Hosmer-Lemeshow goodness of fit test. 

The workshops are an exciting opportunity for you to broaden your graduate training exposure to include methods widely used in the biological and biomedical sciences. I encourage you to consider attending these workshops. 

There is a cost for the workshops, enrollment can be found here:

More information on the workshops is available from Melanie Bowman

Lunch included for both days. Second day location is Drachman Hall room A114
