CTSI issues faculty statistics, informatics training needs assessment survey

More than 2,100 faculty across the Academic Health Center recently received a short survey designed to help CTSI assess faculty training needs in statistics and informatics.

Through its new Clinical and Translational Science Award, CTSI aims to foster career development for the next generation of clinical and translational researchers and strengthen team-based science at the University of Minnesota. Furthering its investigator training platform helps achieve these goals.

In the survey, faculty are asked to indicate their preferences for statistics and informatics courses on topics including: survival (time-to-event) analysis, sample size and power estimation, equivalence study designs, study monitoring, access to clinical, genomics, and biospecimen data, data governance and compliance, natural language processing, and secure PHI compliant data infrastructure, among others.

Courses developed would be free for investigators and their departments, 1-2 hours in length, and could be online, classroom, or another format.
