USMLE Biostatistics & Epidemiology

What is the purpose of this course?

The Complete USMLE Biostatistics Course is a short online course for medical students which covers the essential biostatistics, epidemiology and health research topics which are frequently tested in the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) and the Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination  (COMLEX) . This course was developed to address the relative difficulty that medical students experience when trying to master basic biostatistics and epidemiology concepts. 

How is the course structured?

The course is composed of several chapters and sections. Each chapter has two components; a 15-25 min video lecture and a section with USMLE style practice questions. In order to get the most benefit from the course, it is recommended that you watch each video chapter and then complete the associated practice exercises. 

How long does it take to complete the entire course?

If you complete one full chapter (video and practice exercises) daily, it would take you approximately 25-30 days to finish. On average, it takes about 1-2 hours to complete a single chapter, however, this depends on your speed.
