BERD Clinic

Social Distancing Update

Starting in July, we will begin offering in-person meetings again. However, by default, all meetings are virtual (Zoom)- if you would like an in-person meeting, you must specifically request so when you sign up for the clinic. 


Easily-Accessible Consultations

At the Biostats, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD) Clinic, UTHSC faculty and residents can, with advance registration, meet with specialists 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). For investigators looking for a collaborator, or consulting services, an initial meeting through the BERD Clinic is required to connect you to those services.

Up to 15 slots are available weekly via Zoom and in-person at 66 North Pauline (11 hours). This service is available for all UTHSC faculty, residents, and students from any UTHSC campus.
