The level of the course is roughly that of a first year's master course in Mathematical Biometry. Some basic knowledge of standard survival analysis (Kaplan-Meier estimator, Cox model) and of R is required.

This course covers models that generalize the analysis of time to a single event (survival analysis) to analyzing the timing of distinct terminal events (competing risks) and possible intermediate events (multistate models). Competing risks and multistate models are used in numerous fields such as biomedical research, reliability theory, demography, sociology and econometrics. Multistate methods are promoted with a focus on non- and semiparametric methods and applied (in R) to biomedical data sets from the lecturer's own practical experience.
