The focus of this course is providing students with the theoretical background, methodological, and practical skills to engage in quantitative research. In this experiential course students will develop skills in the processes of quantitative research in health, from question development to analysis of study findings. Ethical guidelines for quantitative inquiry will be discussed. Students will build on their undergraduate research courses and explore quantitative methods to understand approaches suited to specific research questions. Students will demonstrate capacity to use analysis software to conduct data analysis and interpret results. Methods for presentation of quantitative findings will also be discussed.
