14/15 May Allerød, Denmark

Dr. Terry Therneau has worked in medical research statistics for
over 15 years. He has written several papers on the use of residuals
in the Cox model, and is the author of the survival routines found in
S-PLUS, as well as the SAS routines COXREG and SURVTEST.

Note: Due to his employer's policies and participation in "speaker's
and a recent decision to include the Insightful sponsored courses under that
categorization, these are likely to be the last courses offered by Dr.
through our sponsorship.

Course Description
The survival analysis software available in standard statistical packages
has recently experienced a major increment in functionality, and is no
limited to the triad of Kaplan-Meier curves, log rank tests, and simple
Cox models. This course provides an overview of modern survival analysis
methods available in S-PLUS. Topics include time-dependent coefficient
models, expected survival calculations, weighted sampling, penalized
models and frailty models.
