Biostatistics Journal Club

**The information on this page is from 2018. For current Journal Club details, visit the Graduate Student Association site***

The Biostatistics Journal Club meets every other Wednesday of every month during the school year (unless otherwise specified). The club was created for the benefit of Biostatistics graduate students and staff, but is open to all students, staff and faculty of Vanderbilt University. Each session will comprise the discussion of a publication of statistical interest that is distributed 3 days or more prior to the meeting. We read current and classic papers, both methodological and applied in focus.

Time & Location

Every other Wednesday of every month at 12:00 pm in the Biostatistics Conference Room (11105, 2525 West End Avenue).

Email Notification

We send out email notifications the week before we meet to distribute the paper, as well as a reminder the week of the discussion.
