Biometrics in the Medical School Curriculum: Making the Necessary Relevant.
Murphy, James R.
Journal of Medical Education, v55 n1 p27-33 Jan 1980
Because a student is more likely to learn and retain course content perceived as relevant, an attempt was made to change medical students' perceptions of a biometrics course by introducing statistical methods as a means of solving problems in the interpretation of clinical lab data. Retrospective analysis of student course evaluations indicates a significant change in student reaction. (Author/JMD)
