Applied Logistic Regression

Kurs og kompetanseutvikling for helsepersonell, 12.03.2018-16.03.2018

We have booked professor Stanley Lemeshow to hold his course in logistic regression in Lillehammer. This is a wonderful opportunity to interact and learn from one of the leading teachers of medical statistics.


Auditorium at Innlandet Hospital Trust,
Anders Sandviksgate 17, 2609 Lillehammer

About the course

The aim of this course is to provide theoretical and practical in statistical modeling with particular emphasis on logistic regression analysis. The increasingly popular logistic regression model has become a standard method for regression analysis in the health sciences.

The course will be the same as he holds in Rotterdam each summer:
