      The goalAcquiring knowledge and mastering of statistical methods for analyzing the results of research, epidemiological monitoring, genetic testing. The design and analysis of clinical research in veterinary medicine. Planning experiments.
      The outcomeThe student is qualified for independent application of statistical operations in everyday work and in the analysis of experimental results. Able to independently create and set up an experiment. It is expected that students can demonstrate concrete understanding in application software package to calculate the statistical value and independently perform statistical analysis.
