Research Methodology and Medical Statistics is an important tool keep a check on the research projects undertaken in the medical field. Ayurvedic principles and medicines should also be time tested firm by application of these tools. Universal acceptance to Ayurved in sonly possible after sound research with the help of modern research techniques; hence knowledge of research and statistics important to every research student.

We have printed the syllabus specified by C.C.I.M. and M.U.H.S. helpful for Ayurvedic research scholars. We have especially taken care to cover each and every point from the syllabus by giving referal page number for each point. The vast and complicated part of Research and Statistics is made easier and has been presented with ample illustrations and Ayurvedic examples wherever possible.

The book has been divided in three sections for the convenience of the students:

Section A- Research Methodology

Section B- Research Methodology (Ayurvedic view)

Section C- Medical Statistics

We are sure that all the students and teachers of PG will appreciate our efforts.
