BERD Clinic

Social Distancing Alert

In order to support the university’s efforts at social distancing, all BERD Clinic meetings will be held virtually (Zoom) until further notice. If you are signed up for an in-person meeting, please disregard any reminders with directions to an in-person meeting. You will receive a Zoom meeting invite before your scheduled meeting. Rest assured that we will provide the same level of service as before and all biostatistics consulting projects will continue as planned. We look forward to working with you.


Easily-Accessible Consultations

At the Biostats, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD) Clinic, UTHSC faculty and residents can, with advance registration, come in for biostatistics, epidemiology, and research design consultations. These consultations are limited in scope and intended to help researchers understand the underlying statistical aspects of their research design so they can adequately plan projects (e.g. study design, analytic approaches, simple power analyses, see below).
