This course discusses survival analysis concepts with an emphasis on health care problems. The course focuses on the Cox proportional hazards model, not the parametric models, and is not designed for predictive modelers.

Skills Gained

  • perform exploratory data analysis using ODS Statistical Graphics
  • fit the proportional hazards model
  • assess the fit of the model
  • fit Cox proportional hazards models for repeated events and clustered observations.

Who Can Benefit

  • Biostatisticians, epidemiologists, social scientists, and physical scientists


  • Before attending this course, you should
  • be able to create SAS data sets and manipulate data. You can gain this experience from the SAS(R) Programming II: Manipulating Data with the DATA Step course.
  • have completed a statistics course such as the Statistics I: Introduction to ANOVA, Regression, and Logistic Regression or the Statistics II: ANOVA and Regression courses.
