EDUCATION AND TRAINING
BERD members provide a free hour of one-on-one consultations. While these meetings are often to discuss particular aspects of papers or proposals, they can also be used to discuss statistical and study design concepts. Please provide in advance a specific list of topics and the reasons for the discussion, so that BERD members can make the best and most efficient use of that time. Fees will apply to repeated requests from particular researchers.
BERD members provide several workshops on common and important statistical and study design topics throughout the year, which are free to the VCU research community. BERD members are also willing to discuss the potential for workshops on specific or uniquely tailored topics, or to smaller groups, though fees may apply. Rather than dull or dry lectures, our workshops are provided in lay, understandable language and will involve active participation from attendees.
