The Oxford Medical Statistics Network (OxStat) is open to staff and postgraduate students with an interest in medical statistics, working or studying within the Medical Sciences Division. The aim of the group is to facilitate networking, communication and collaboration, and to provide informal support and foster good practice.

The network circulates a newsletter and holds free events every term, such as talks and workshops from internal and external speakers. Anyone within the division with an interest in medical statistics (epidemiologists, medical statisticians, health economists, data scientists, DPhil students) is welcome to join.

If you have any relevant news or upcoming events to publicize please send them to the OXStat mailing list  oxstat@npeu.ox.ac.uk.

What are the network aims

  • To provide an opportunity for networking with fellow medical statisticians in Oxford
  • To provide a hub of informal support and shared learning for statisticians work in health related research
  • To encourage collaborative work in methodology and statistics
  • To hold and promote local statistical events, teaching and career development opportunities

What is outside the remit of the network

  • The OxStat network does not provide statistical consultancy,  guidance on study design or support for grant applications. Support for grant applications is provided by Research Design Service South Central; Oxford University Statistical Consulting provides consultancy services to both internal departments and external businesses and organizations.
