Statistical Consulting Center

Overview of Services


The Statistical Consulting Center in the Department of Population Health Sciences at the Augusta University provides comprehensive statistical consulting for clients within and outside the Medical College.



Specific services offered by the Statistical Consulting Center include assistance in design of clinical trials, experimental design, power and sample size estimation, randomization, data management, modeling, data analysis, interpretation and manuscript preparation. The Center also can help designing, conduct and analyze surveys. Consulting is provided by Biostatistics faculty and staff. Staff consultants are supervised by a member of the faculty.

Also through the consulting center, the Department of Population Health Sciences supports the research mission of all units of AU by providing collaborative research support throughout all phases of internal and external grant proposal preparations and funded research, serving as co-investigators in the grants. Similar collaborative support is also provided to external researchers.



The rates for Biostatistical Staff are $160 per hour and Biostatistical Faculty service requests are $240 per hour.  These rates are applied to all consulting and survey-related services. Investigators affiliated with AU will be given a discount of 50%. The initial hour-long consultation is also provided free of charge to all AU investigators.

Grant preparation support is offered to AU researchers free of charge, provided that the DPHS faculty is a co-investigator in the proposal with a funding request for significant percent effort.



Other Relevant Information:

After the initial consultation, a cost estimate is provided.


A 50% surcharge is imposed for work needed within one week.


Where meaningful intellectual contribution to the formulation of a research question or the analytic scheme for a research paper has been provided by the statistical consultant, it is expected that Biostatistics personnel will be offered co-authorship on consequent publications and presentations.


If the investigator is a student, resident or fellow, his/her faculty advisor must be present at least at the initial meeting.


A consulting application form must be completed online before an appointment can be scheduled. This form is used in matching the client’s needs with the proper statistical expertise in order to ensure the best possible services. Following review of the application, an appointment will be arranged with the client for the initial consultation.
