EMBRS course director Gary Gaddis, MD, PhD, FACEP, was introduced as a faculty member to teach biostatistics in 2009. He became course director in 2017 and continues to lead a team of instructors who inspire novice researchers to change our practice for the better. This year, he will include a new statistical analysis module that includes downloading and using the SPSS package to enhance the practical benefit to students. Mindful of the needs of adult learners, the class will have more active learning time and less lecture time.
More information about the course can be found on the ACEP website.
