The course focuses on statistical metods in medicine and epidemiology as well as on practical aspects of applying statistics in biomedical environment.
Aim of the course -
Last update: T_KPMS (11.05.2015)

To explain methods for analysis of medical experiments.

Course completion requirements
Last update: RNDr. Jitka Zichová, Dr. (23.04.2018)

The exercise class credit is necessary to sign up for the exam. The credit for the exercise class will be awarded to the student who hands in a satisfactory solution to each assignment by the prescribed deadline. The nature of these requirements precludes any possibility of additional attempts to obtain the exercise class credit.
