SAS Clinical Training

3896 Learners

SAS Clinical training provides insight on the practical aspects of clinical trials. How to design, analyze and generate reports are explained in support of real time data. The skills of writing SAS programs, importing/exporting data and transforming it further for performing analysis on it is imparted by the industry experts. The training will equip the candidates with theoretical knowledge, practical experience, detailed description of programs, and key techniques involved in the clinical trial analysis.

By the end of SAS Clinical training you will exhibit the following capabilities:

  • Illustrate the fundamental knowledge of trial designs, alternative trial designs and statistical analysis
  • Access, manage, and transform clinical trials data
  • Create tables, listings, and clinical trial graphs
  • Use PROC REQ and PROC UNIVARIATE to export descriptive statistics
  • Work on the analysis of stratified data
  • Interpret various methods used for multiple comparisons and multiple endpoints
  • Decide reference intervals for safety and diagnostic measures
  • Evaluate results from incomplete data
Target audience
  • Life Science or Bioinformatics graduates
  • SAS programmer
  • Clinical Programmer
Prerequisites
  • Knowledge of Base SAS
  • Deep understanding of clinical programming concepts
  • Basic understanding of statistics
