Abstract: This report outlines my experience as a student biostatistician during an 8-month co-op; I highly recommend the experience to other students as a means to gain valuable work experience and to bridge the gap between the theoretical and the practical application of concepts taught in the MSc Statistics (Biostatistics) program.

CANet is an NCE-funded research network based in London, Ontario, focused on developing virtual care platforms for cardiovascular and other related health conditions. I was part of a clinical team performing statistical analyses and developing statistical protocols for projects including virtual care of atrial fibrillation and Post-MI management. I also lead the analysis of a clinical trial assessing a virtual care model for COVID-19 that became the basis of a research project undertaken with the supervision of Daniel McDonald).
