Training

Chair: Mary Elliott

The PSI Training Committee organises five or six training courses each year. Generally our courses are designed to bring statisticians and statistical programmers working in the pharmaceutical industry up-to-date in a particular subject area. Courses are of one or two days' duration, and our presenters are often from academia with particular expertise in the course topic. We focus on application, but also provide sufficient theory to clarify the concepts behind the techniques. Delegate numbers are limited to 30 or less so that there is plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.

In addition we work with other professional groups and run an annual training course for statisticians new to the industry.
