As medicine relies increasingly on mathematics, no clinician can afford to leave the statistical aspects of a paper to the "experts." Many scholarly articles published in medical journals present findings in the form of numerical summaries, tables, and graphs. The goal of this presentation is to explain statistical terms which are frequently used in describing study's design, statistical analysis, and presentation of the results. These include basic summary measures used to describe patient cohort, statistical hypothesis testing procedures and techniques used to establish the association between the outcome and certain patient's characteristics. Recently published articles will be used to illustrate the usage, presentation, and interpretation of a broad range of statistical concepts.
