About the course Introduction in using R

The statistical program R is widely used in medical research in many institutes, providing the main route to dissemination of recent statistical methodology. Moreover, it is free to download from the internet. Therefore it is important for researchers to learn how to work with this program. 
The course is aimed at PhD candidates and postdocs of the RIHS, RIMLS and Donders Center for Medical Neuroscience (DCMN), who have an interest in learning how to work with R, but have no prior experience with the program. During this one-day course you will become acquainted with the basics by using R Studio. Several topics will be introduced, such as importing data (Excel, SPSS, SAS, Stata, CSV), writing R-code (syntax), processing data, performing simple statistical analyses, visualization of the results in graphs, and installation of extra packages.
The course will be given by Dr. Gerjon Hannink and is provided by the section Biostatistics of the Department for Health Evidence at the Radboudumc.

Prerequisites: Some basic level of statistics is recommended, but not mandatory. A laptop is necessary (software will be provided before the course). Power cords for electricity supply will be available.
