Tutorials
The MEGACourse offers tutorials on selected topics in Applied Epidemiology and Biostatistical Methods (of relevance to HIV, STDs, TB & Viral Hepatitis (non-enteric) Epidemiology).
Click here to view a sample tutorial . All other tutorial materials are currently provided to fellows enrolled in in-service training programs. 

Tutorial topics include the following:

Basic, intermediate and advanced Epidemiology and Biostatistical methods often used in applied HIV Epidemiology studies:
- Sampling in Epidemiologic studies;
- Outbreak investigation analyses;
- Analyses of categorical/binary data (incl. comparison of proportions); 
- Life-table and Kaplan-Meir analyses;
- Reliability/inter-rater agreement analyses;
- Standardization analyses, etc;
- Simple, stratified and multivariate/adjusted analyses (incl. linear and multiple regression, multiple logistic and polytonous logistic regression);
- Analyses of cohort and case-control study data  (including matched studies) using multiple logistic regression, Cox proportional-hazards regression, etc);
- Analyses of HIV/infectious disease outbreak and social/partner network investigation data; 
- Social network and cluster analyses; 
- Time-series analyses;
- Path analyses;
- Evaluation analyses of surveillance systems and screening programs (incl.analyses of completeness and timeliness of reporting; analyses of sensitivity and specificity of case definitions, matching algorithms and screening tests);
 
Issues and approaches in health data collection:
- Collecting data from case interviews
- Collecting data from medical records
- Collecting data from laboratory reports (or pathology reports)
- Collecting data from vital statistics records
Data Management
- Creating a database for a health data set using various methods: Database development using MS Access (non-web); Web databases using ASP & MS Access, MySQL, PHP, CGI 
- Arrays of datasets;
Merging Datasets to Add  Cases;
- Merging Datasets to Add Variables: matching (record linkage) of datasets;
- Cleaning datasets;
   
Getting started using statistical software to analyze and characterize Epidemiologic data 
- SAS 
- SPSS 
- STATA 
- EpiInfo
- Mapping/GIS Software, including ArcView 
   
Approaches/strategies for conducting record-linkage
- Using statistical software
- Using other software, e.g. SQL, OTS record-linkage software, etc
