Evidence Based Medicine is an elective course for General and Dental medicine students and its purpose is to provide them information how to systematically search a wide range of international medical journals applying strict criteria for the validity of research. The students will understand how the experts critically appraise the validity of the most clinically relevant articles and how their summaries can be utilized in clinical practice.
This work was supported by the national grant KEGA 011UPJŠ-4/2019 "Increasing of competences and critical thinking level in students of medical study programs using simulation tools of Problem-Based Learning and Evidence-Based Medicine".
Hospital information systems are designed with the aim to manage various clinical and patient health care related activities in more efficient way. In contrast to the paper based forms the administration tasks are realized in fully electronic way. This provides easy and fast access to the patient data, patient’s history of illness and treatment, allows monitoring of drug distribution, improves communication between physicians, reduces duplication of information entries, better financial management etc. Hospital Information systems also help in decision making procedures oriented on selection of proper treatment as well as on creation of health care policy.
This study material is intended to provide a summary of basic statistical measures, methods and tests used to describe and to evaluate various sets of medical data. The theory offered here should help students of General Medicine, who selected an elective course Biostatistics, to learn terms and concepts they will work with during practical lessons. Presentations create only the foundation necessary for understanding the role of statistics in clinical scientific research and recommended resources should be also used to study particular topics in more details.

Project CROESUS aims to bring new technologies into the education processes at medical faculties. One of the project’s activity is to establish a system to operate virtual patients. To do this, respecting teachers’ as well as students’ preferences in this area we prepared a survey. The survey tries to collect information about most preferred features of such systems and you can participate on it at http://goo.gl/forms/3OuloDJoEP. Thanks for your time.
It becomes increasingly important for medical professionals to have an understanding of informatics and its background. The information systems and information technologies are widely used in today’s health care systems, and therefore it is necessary to support education in this area for both medical students and for physicians who graduated before informatics was applied in the field of medicine. The aims of Informatics should be oriented on improving knowledge about computers’ terms, methods and tools. The student should acquire the knowledge that allows them to reach the appropriate computer skills. These have to be sufficient to use Informatics elements in processing of given tasks and/or scientific works in an effective way.
