Statistics for Bench Research
Success in academic surgery requires a basic understanding of statistics. Without this understanding a surgeon-scientist will not be able to interpret scientific articles, develop a hypothesis, or analyze the data they collect in their research program. The purpose of this chapter is to provide a brief overview of the statistical methods which are used in bench and clinical research.
