The Module of Statistics Applied to Medicine is part of the Integrated Course of Physical Sciences. The main formative objective is to give to the students the basic
elements of medical statistics and biostatistics, so they can study and
understand the scientific literature and have some basic concepts for
future experimental studies to be conducted during the thesis period.
Some concrete examples from environmental and occupational medicine
will be done to better insert this module in the context of students’ field.
Finally, some examples will be shown with a program called OPENSTAT, a
freeware software specifically designed for basic statistics.
