Carol Marchetti, a Connell School PhD candidate, was awarded a grant to attend a one-week intensive practice-oriented research training course for doctoral students in advanced quantitative design and statistical analysis in the health science fields of nursing, public health, and medicine. The summer program, held this past August, was organized by the Institute of Nursing Science at the University of Basel in Basel, Switzerland.

Course participants were introduced to advanced quantitative methods focusing on the integration of research design and statistical approaches to analyze data, and the interpretation of the results from the application of these statistical methods. The course combined morning lectures and afternoon seminars with hands-on practice, giving students the opportunity to immediately apply the various data analysis techniques presented beforehand. Marchetti's grant was funded by ThinkSwiss.
