What others are saying about this course 

“Excellent way of approaching meta-analysis, rendering it very simple, using a very nice and user-friendly software.” Sylvain Larroque, Senior Biostatistician, Shire


“Michael clearly explained some of the basic concepts of meta-analysis (e.g. Random vs. fixed effects models; interpreting heterogeneity scores; subgroup analysis) in a way that made these sometimes-confusing issues clear. He also exposed some of the myths and mistakes that are common in many published Meta-Analysis.” Christina Pallitto, World Health Organization (WHO)


“Great course material; great lectures by Michael, well prepared and clear; great interactive opportunities with Michael; very informal and friendly atmosphere that makes you listen and dare to ask questions; perfect mix of lectures and practice.” Karin Jensen, Harvard Medical School


Who Should Attend

This course is intended for researchers, clinicians, educators, statisticians, graduate students, and anyone with an interest in understanding or performing meta-analysis.


Our approach is primarily conceptual and practical rather than mathematical, and participants with only one or two statistics classes in their background should be able to fully understand the materials.


About the Instructor

Dr. Michael Borenstein, one of the authors of Introduction to Meta-Analysis, is widely recognized for his ability to make statistical concepts accessible to researchers as well as to statisticians. He has lectured widely on meta-analysis, including at the NIH, CDC, and FDA.


What others are saying about this course

“This course was fantastic. A good balance of theory and practice really helped to bring my current understanding of meta-analysis to a higher level. It helped to smooth out some rough edges that will guide my future research.” Liz Speelman, Georgia College & State University


“Unraveled some of the mysteries of meta-analysis with practical "hands-on" examples, that could be easily understood by those of us who are not statisticians.” Caryl Nowson, Deakin University, Australia


“I truly appreciated the course. It was very clear, but also very thorough. It was also very clear when it comes to fallacies to take into consideration, when you are publishing a meta-analysis. I can really recommend this course to everybody who are working with or plan to work with Meta-Analysis.” Monica Melby-Lervag, Professor University of Oslo


“The workshop you presented at CDC was incredibly helpful. It provided us with basic and also up-to-date knowledge and skills to critique and perform meta-analyses.” Nicole Crepaz at CDC (Centers for Disease Control)


“I have never found any other materials more brilliant than this course.”  Evelyn Wong, Castle Park Hospital, Hong Kong


“Great program and a great workshop. Combined content about meta-analysis with hands-on application and examples. Dr. Borenstein makes complex and nuanced analysis easily understandable.” Kari Adamsons, University of Connecticut
