Explanation of the basic principles of fundamentals of study design, scientific wiring and publication
The objective of this course is to help trainees in writing their research in a simple and practical manner based on the long personal experience of the course director in this regard. Clinicians find difficulties in understanding the difference between various types of study design and how to choose the best study design to achieve their objectives. This course contains clinician-to-clinician advice on the fundamentals of studs design which are integral part of any scientific work. The course will also shed the light on how to test the diagnostic performance of a new diagnostic modality in urology. The course will also help urologists to differentiate between weak and strong studies through presention of an over view on evidence based medicine. The course will guide urologists to perfrom randomized controlled trial (RCT) which is the gold standard in medicine. Moreover, the course contains precious advice form an editor on how to write and critically appraise a medical original article.
