Now in its 17th year, the Centre for Statistics in Medicine (CSM)’s Randomised Controlled Trials (RCT) Course is ideal for anyone planning or actively involved in RCTs for healthcare evaluation, particularly those early in their career or those looking for a refresher course. The course uses a problem-based learning approach to provide a thorough grounding in the principles and practice of planning, conducting, reporting, and interpreting RCTs, mixing lectures and small-group practical work.
The interdisciplinary faculty includes three registered CTU directors, clinicians, and statisticians, all with a wealth of RCT experience. Faculty includes CSM staff (e.g., Associate Prof Jonathan Cook and Dr Ines Rombach), wider University of Oxford staff (e.g., Prof David Beard and Prof Ed Juszczak), and those from further afield (e.g., Prof Mike Clarke of Queen’s University Belfast, Prof Richard Emsley of King’s College London, and Prof Karina Lovell of University of Manchester).
The RCT Course 2019 will be held at Merton College, University of Oxford and costs £1450 (£1300 early-bird rate before 1 May 2019).
