Update from the Dean – May 2019

Dear UCSF School of Pharmacy Family and Friends:

At the UCSF School of Pharmacy we don’t just embrace change, we create it. We have a rich history as drivers of change in our profession, in science, and in education. That passion for change, coupled with a scientific mindset, is clearly evident today in the School, as you’ll read in this Update.

I have much to share, so I’ll get right to it.

With warm regards,

RSCH DATA ANL 2

In my role as Biostatistician, I support the Medication Outcomes Center staff, faculty, and partners in data cleaning, data visualization, study design, and statistical data modeling. This includes working on large electronic health record (EHR) data sets to derive clinically meaningful variables, merging multiple data sets by key identifiers, converting repeated measures data to independent patient-level measures, tabulating descriptive statistics including parametric or non-parametric statistical tests of independence, and creating exploratory plots for patient demographics and clinical outcomes. Some of the observational data modeling approaches I frequently use include logistic regression, mixed models, marginal models, and proportional hazards models. In addition to classic statistical methods, I am interested in applying machine learning algorithms to better understand EHR data with complex variables, heteroscedasticity, and non-linearity.
