The only full Regression Modeling Strategies 4-day course offered this year covers predictive models, validation, missing data, preserving information, measuring predictive accuracy, model specification, avoiding overfitting, the art of data analysis, comprehensive case studies, and more.

The RMS 4-day short course will be held as a virtual course on May 10-13, 2022. This will be a very interactive live web course using Zoom with registration fees that are significantly reduced over the traditional yearly in-person course. Registration opens March 7 (see below). The course includes case studies using R. Even though the 4-day course will not require you to use R interactively, those participants who wish to learn more about R and the rms package may wish to take the optional one-day R workshop on May 9 to enhance R and RStudio skills.

Four-day Short Course in Regression Modeling Strategies by

Frank E. Harrell, Jr., Ph.D., Professor, Department of Biostatistics, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Instructor

Drew G. Levy, Ph.D., GoodScience Inc., Guest Instructor and Moderator

This course is not under the auspices of Vanderbilt University.

Target Audience

Statisticians and other quantitative researchers who want to learn some general predictive model development strategies, including approaches to missing data imputation, data reduction, model specification and variable selection, model validation, relaxing linearity assumptions, and how to choose between machine learning and statistical models.


Good working knowledge of ordinary multiple regression models. Some individuals will want to take the free Biostatistics for Biomedical Research course in preparation (especially sessions on regression).
