Causality in Clinical Research: What, Why, When & How

The Center for Causal Inference is pleased to announce a virtual short course that will provide a non-technical introduction to concepts in causality. In just two half-days, experts in the field will teach a variety of fundamental topics in causal inference including propensity score matching and weighting, instrumental variables, difference-in-differences study designs, and machine learning approaches. All methods will be illustrated using real clinical examples.  

This course is aimed towards clinicians who have a basic understanding of statistics, but who have not had formal training in causal inference concepts and methods. The course will be led by faculty from the University of Pennsylvania, Rutgers, Johns Hopkins, and Vanderbilt who all have a substantial history of collaborating with clinician scientists. 

Registration information will be available in early November.
