STEM conference 2019: Developing and implementing a reputable evidence base for the statistical learning needs of undergraduate medical students in preparation for clinical practice

In this session I shall provide an update on a funded survey-based study which respects the role of medical graduates in identifying those statistical competencies which medical schools ought to provide to ensure thorough preparedness of their graduates for clinical practice. Relatedly I shall challenge the traditional bias towards limiting medical students to critical appraisal of published data in contradistinction to preparing them for safe clinical decision making through performing their calculations and analyses with their own data. In turn I shall share ideas on the development and delivery of online modules through self-paced learning for medical students to take the research findings forward.
