Biostatistics Consulting and Support Services (BCSS)

The BCSS provides statistical advice and support to researchers during the preparation and the implementation of project proposals. The objectives are to maintain the high quality of quantitative research and improve the statistical skills of researchers at RCSI.

Our preferred model of support is one of building the capacity of research teams to meet their own basic statistical support needs. This includes training sessions which are available to all researchers to attend.

The BCSS will be rolled out across the college to staff and postgraduate students in phases. Initially it is available to all Principal Investigators in RCSI and in the RCSI-affiliated Academic Group of Hospitals. The demand, effectiveness and timeliness of the service will be monitored over time and it is expected that this service will be rolled out to all staff and postgraduate students in the near future.

The BCSS runs as an appointment service only. For further information about this service, how you can book an appointment or to simply check for upcoming training sessions, please:
