MS-BIOS 4 Use advanced techniques for summary and visualization of complex data for exploratory analysis and presentation. MS-BIOS 5 MS-BIOS 6 MS-BIOS 7 MS-BIOS 8 Use probability and statistical theory to identify appropriate modeling and analysis methods to address study hypotheses. Determine and check modeling assumptions, and verify validity of proposed analyses. Carry out valid and efficient modeling, estimation, and inference to address study hypotheses, using standard statistical methods including basic one and two sample methods, general linear models including regression and anova, logistic regression, and clustered and longitudinal analysis. Read biostatistical literature to determine and implement alternate methods of analysis. MS-BIOS 9 Demonstrate statistical programming proficiency, good coding style and use of reproducible research principles in leading statistical software. Biologic or Public Health Relevance: Show how biostatistical tools apply to and influence research and policy in the biomedical and public health arenas. Read subject specific biomedical or public health literature and synthesize issues that are important in the design, implementation, and analysis of research in the MS-BIOS 10 subject area. MS-BIOS 11 Apply ethical aspects of public health policy and practice, ensure the quality and security of information used in a study and adhere to the principles of research ethics.

Select and apply appropriate quantitative and qualitative measurement and analysis methods to support research and evaluations in the core areas of public health research and practice, including: epidemiology, environmental and occupational health, community and behavioral health, and public health systems management, policy and outcomes Critically review and interpret public health and other scientific literature to identify strengths and weaknesses of individual studies, to synthesize evidence in a research area, to identify gaps in evidence and to demonstrate relevance of current knowledge to the practice of public health. Translate investigator ideas into answerable research questions. Describe study designs and understand the advantages and limitations of each for addressing specific problems, as well as the practical aspects of their uses. Demonstrate knowledge related to design of data collection forms and protocols, instrument reliability and validity, data monitoring and quality assurance, and data archiving for analysis and use of data by other investigators. Use computer software for data entry, database management, and summarizing, analyzing and displaying data. Understand and appropriately interpret the concepts of effect modification and interaction. Interpret statistical results in order to make appropriate inferences. Demonstrate knowledge of the threats to internal validity and when critically evaluating strength of evidence. Understand and apply basic ethical and legal principles involved in the collection, management, use and dissemination of epidemiologic data. Understand the concepts of human subjects protections and confidentiality. Apply this understanding in the conduct of research and public health practice. Be able to identify and critically evaluate secondary data sources appropriate for answering a given research question. Identify and understand limitations of secondary data sets (e.g. inclusion determinants, nonrandom allocation, measurement error, surrogate outcomes) and possible design and analytic solutions. Demonstrate knowledge of external validity, especially in the context of applying prevention and control strategies and in the emerging fields of dissemination and implementation science.
4 MS-EPID 14 MS-EPID 15 Demonstrate mastery of a substantive area, including the application of that knowledge in conducting research related to a specific topic Communicate both verbally and in writing to non-statistical scientists, practitioners and community members.
5 MS Health Services Research MS Health Services Research Competencies Health Systems, Management and Policy MS-HSR 1 Identify the main components and issues of the organization, financing and delivery of health services and public health systems in the U.S. MS-HSR 2 Discuss the policy process for improving the health status of populations. MS-HSR 3 Apply quality, efficiency and performance improvement concepts to healthcare systems. Health Services Research Methods MS-HSR 4 Identify, and measure, clinically relevant and meaningful outcomes and apply evidence-based practice principles. MS-HSR 5 MS-HSR 6 MS-HSR 7 MS-HSR 8 Critically appraise existing literature and evaluate manuscripts published in peerreviewed journals. Demonstrate breadth of HSR theoretical and conceptual knowledge by applying alternative organizational and behavioral models from a range of relevant disciplines. Pose innovative and important health service research questions, informed by systematic reviews of the literature, stakeholder needs, and relevant theoretical and conceptual models. Select appropriate interventional, observational, or qualitative study designs to address specific health services research questions and hypotheses. MS-HSR 9 Research Professionalism MS-HSR 10 Appropriately select healthcare databases and utilize information technologies in Accurately select, use and interpret commonly used statistics in health services MS-HSR 11 MS-HSR 12 MS-HSR 13 MS-HSR 14 Understand and adhere to legal, ethical and regulatory issues related to clinical Effectively communicate the findings and implications of HSR through multiple modalities to technical and lay audiences.
