Medical Articles Involving Multivariable Modeling to Critique

Students should divide into groups each containing 3 or 4 persons. Each group should select two of the following articles to read and critique. Define group membership and claim articles by inserting text at the bottom of this page. Each group will be asked to present each of its critiques to the class on 26 Feb 04. Describe the study and its goals, the information base on which the model was developed, and discuss good and bad aspects of the analysis and how the results were presented. The instructor will be able to project tables and graphics in the articles in class. Groups may want to bring handouts or slides of other material they wish to present.
