COVID-19 Update: The EMR Boot Camp will not take place in person due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, the Training will be a live-stream, remote training that takes place over live, online video on August 12-13, 2021 from 10am EDT - ~5pm EDT. Please note this training is not a self-paced, pre-recorded online training.

This two-day intensive workshop will go over opportunities and potentials of EMR/EHR for health and medical studies, statistical challenges and pitfalls for analyzing EMR/EHR, and the latest developments of multiple techniques to address those challenges, followed by hands-on computer lab sessions and case studies to put concepts into practice.

By the end of the electronic medical records training, participants will be familiar with the following topics:

-Power and potentials of EMR/EHR data
-Open-access datasets across the world
-Preparation, transformation and integration of EMR/EHR
-Confounding, bias and missing data in EMR/EHR and statistical methods addressing these challenges
-Statistical methods for comparative effectiveness
-Statistical methods for predictive analysis

Investigators at all career stages are welcome to attend, and we particularly encourage trainees and early-stage investigators to participate.

There are three prerequisites and requirements to attend this training:

1.Each participant must have an introductory background in statistics.
2.Each participant must be familiar with R.
3.Each participant must have a laptop with R and RStudio downloaded and installed prior to the first day of the training.
