Welcome to DOMStat

The Department of Medicine Statistics Core (DOMStat) is a team of experienced faculty and staff biostatisticians, data managers and research assistants. DOMStat is housed within the Department of Medicine's Division of General Internal Medicine and Health Services Research. Our primary objective is to provide investigators in the Department of Medicine with state-of-the-art statistical support. DOMStat collaborates with faculty and trainees throughout the health sciences at UCLA on study design, data management and statistical analysis. We also work closely with investigators in drafting statistical sections for grant proposals, study protocols and research manuscripts.

We encourage you to consult with our statisticians early in your project, as this is when we can be most helpful in evaluating research designs and data collection plans. Our consultants can provide assistance in the following areas:
