Measurement Uncertainty, Statistical Quality Control, Study Design and Laboratory Statistics

Online training courses from pathologymu

Online courses available now from pathologymu. Sign up for updates for new courses, there will be many more to come, specifically designed for us in the medical laboratory

Much more than a “how to” walk through some calculations, these courses answers what we need, how we need it. By the end of the courses you will have a template that makes statistical approaches to laboratory science understandable, applicable and useful to your daily work practices.

Blended online and in person training
