Aim:

To equip students with the skills needed to analyse and interpret data from different research designs using basic statistical techniques.

Intended learning outcomes (ILOs):

By the end of this module students should be able to:

  1. Understand the methods used to collect and organize data and its determinants using appropriate tools.
  2. Apply basic statistical techniques to explore  different data in parasitological research
  3. Critically read assess relevant literature.

Importance of the program:

This program provides training on basic statistical techniques for our students. This is an essential step in almost all scientific researches.

Program regulation and outline:

Regulations of the program:

Basic computing skills are prerequisites for joining this program. The program is organized by the responsible staff members in collaboration with medical education center or Public Health department Cairo University. Examples will be based around research themes appropriate to the particular module. Announcement for this program will be as soon as the agreement with the responsible staff members.

Teaching Strategy and Learning time:

This module is predominately computer-based. The data analyzed will be drawn from research works by staff members in Parasitology. There will be also some lectures and small group work.

Learning Time:

This program depends mainly on training sessions with few theoretical lectures.

 Assessment:

Students will write up the results of one of the analyses carried out in the program, presented in the format of a scientific paper.
