Learning outcomes

------------------------
MM: STATISTICA MEDICA ED EPIDEMIOLOGIA CLINICA
------------------------
The aim of the course "Medical statistics and clinical epidemiology" is to provide the theoretical and practical tools for assessing the frequency of diseases in human populations and the associated risk factors. The course therefore aims to provide expertise in epidemiology and bio-statistics. At the end of the course, the student must demonstrate to have understood the basic bio-statistical methods applied to epidemiology and the elements of an epidemiological study.
