BERD Clinic

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).
