## Learning Objectives

• Physics

The course has the stated goal of providing adequate knowledge and understanding of fundamental physical laws that govern biomedical processes, and skills in applying knowledge

• 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 science

This course provides the basic theoretical knowledge about the use of a computer, hardware and software, about the applications of informatics in health care settings, as well as providing practical knowledge on the use of an operative system and of the office suite (Word, Excel).
