Our Testimonials

“During education, we sometimes stumble upon topics that give us a ‘brain freeze’. They become something we avoid encountering at all costs. For me, biomedical statistics was one of those topics along with such ‘villains’ as the Krebs cycle and coagulation cascade. Yet Dr. R. Kay’s course, concise and comprehensible, dispelled the curse in a truly painless way. Highly recommended.”

Migle Janeliuniene, Medical Writer at Biomapas (Lithuania).

"I have really enjoyed the course as it refreshed my quite older knowledge and helped me be aware some of the newer insights. Good examples were included that were exactly demonstrating the different aspects in the course. Thank you!"

Linda Rutgrink, Regional Trial Manager at Sanofi (Netherlands)

"Thank you, Richard!
Yes, I enjoyed the course - I signed-up for your course because it has been 10 years since I completed a Dutch-language masters in epidemiology (Dutch is a second language; I'm a native English speaker) and I hadn't actively used this knowledge for a while. I now work as a freelance medical writer and I wanted to be sure I would be able to explain and summarise study results correctly. Revisiting the concepts in English through your course was very helpful in solidifying my understanding and I feel I achieved my learning goal. Thanks again."

Kimi Uegaki - Medical Writer (Netherlands)

"I did do most of the online course, I had only missed the 2nd half of Richards course so had all the notes. I found the online course pretty much an exact replica of what he delivers in person as all the notes and examples are the same. Clear, concise, digestible and I liked the modular format being able to take it at my own pace it made it seem more manageable. I would say it is a brilliant substitute for the face to face but not an extra/supplement to the usual course. I used his online modules as my core learning supplemented with his brilliant book if I wanted more detail/ practical examples."

Emma Smith, Janssen Pharmaceuticals(UK)

"Thanks, Richard. I found the course very useful. This course is unusual in using words and examples, rather than equations, to explain the implications and applications of statistical tests. It explains how to interpret, not conduct, statistical tests and the quizzes dotted throughout the course refer usefully to the same published article, which further brings the concepts to life."

Sally Watcham (Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB)

"It was a great chance to attend this well designed and informative course.
Thanks Richard Kay for your effort."

Mariam Amin - Assistant Lecturer of Public Health at Assiut University ( Egypt)

"Thanks a lot, I found the course with DR. Richard Kay very interesting and relevant to the type of studies conducted at the hospital where I work. To me, I was a great advantage that handouts were available to add own notes and that I could ‘replay’ some of the slides. I also appreciated the “Would you like to continue where you left off” option which I used a couple of times during each module.

The level of detail seemed very appropriate to me. Still, I would like to receive information on the level 2 course."
