**COURSE DESCRIPTION: **Multivariable Regression builds on the knowledge of univariate and bivariate analyses that were learned in the Clinical Research Intensive course and introduces concepts related to multivariable model building for multiple linear regression, logistic regression and survival analysis. Both the lecture and the lab will focus on multiple regression model building, interpretation and diagnostic tests, assessing for interaction, and statistical adjustment for confounding.
