About the course Introduction in using R

The statistical program R is widely used in medical research, providing the main route to dissemination of recent statistical methodology and data visualisation. 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, 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 RStudio. 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 Jordache Ramjith, MSc 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 (Participants will have to install the latest version of the software programmes R and RStudio (free to download) before the start of the course). Power cords for electricity supply will be available.
