## Learning Objectives

• Medical Statistics

The course will provide basic elements to let the student be able to describe individual and population based biological events through syntetic indeces. Moreover, the student should be able to identify and use elementary metodologies of analysis of numerical data

• Computer Technology

The objectives of this module are focused on learning and the conception of the logic that regulates basic computing, elaboration data, structure, classification and typology of networks.

## Course Structure

• Medical Statistics

Classroom lecturers using blackboard and tracing papers
