What do medical students think about bio statistics education?
Author(s): Anil Kumar Agarwal
Abstract: Biostatistics classes can cause many medical students to feel frustrated and frantic. Why is biostatistics part of the body of knowledge that is deemed essential and fundamental for the medical student and eventual practitioner? This is a question that many perplexed (because of trying to comprehend biostatistics) medical students ask. To reiterate, not perceiving the practical role (not just the test-taking role) of biostatistics may didn’t better motivate medical students to learn–and avoid want to learn–the language, purpose and practicality of biostatistics.
