## Learning outcomes

Module: STATISTICA MEDICA ED EPIDEMIOLOGIA CLINICA
-------
The aims of the course "Medical statistics and clinical epidemiology" are to provide the tools for the quantitative evaluation of biomedical problems, taking the biological variability into account, and to assess the frequency of diseases in human populations and the associated risk factors.

Module: METODOLOGIA DELL'ASSISTENZA OSTETRICA BASATA SULLE EVIDENZE
-------
The student, at the end of the course, will be able to ask himself questions about obstetric care and will know how to look for scientific evidences and translate them in Evidence Based Practices, in relation to the operational contest and to the professional experience.
