Dr. Prabodh Moreshwar Yerawar is currently working as Asst. Professor at Abhilashi Ayurvedic College and Research Institute, Mandi (H.P.). He did his B.A.M.S. from Shri Ayurved College, Nagpur and M.D. in Samhita and Siddhant from Rajiv Gandhi Govt. P.G. Ayurvedic College, Paprola (H.P). His First Book 'Ashtanghridayprabodhan' was published in 2016 and this is his second work for student fraternity.
Ayurveda is ancient life science that has been providing its mettle for ages. But due to paucity of research and documentation, the science remains largely unexplored. Introduction of 'Research Methodology and Medical Statistics' in B.A.M.S. curriculum is a welcome step and will go a long way in the development of Ancient treasure.
Keeping in view, the requirement of concise and comprehensible material, the book has been designed in such a way that it helps students understand the concepts and prepare for the examinations. The chapters in the book are in the form of modules and are as per the C.C.I.M. syllabus. The book comprises of two parts, one belongs to research methodology and other is regarding medical statistics. Subject matter is well described in the form of flow charts and tree diagrams in a simple language. Numerical and examples are related to Ayurveda.
Although every effort has been made to frame a book that is flawless, yet I extend apologies if some errors have inadvertently crept-in. I humbly request my readers, teachers and scholars to let me know if there are some mistakes and kindly send me a feedback.
With the hope that the book proves to be useful to the students, we are looking forward for more editions.
I thank Prof. Naresh Sharma, (Head, P.G. Dept. of Basic Principles, R.G.Govt. Ayurvedic, College, Paprola) for his valuable guidance. I pay my gratitude to Dr. Rajesh Sood and Dr. Satish Gandharve for their support. I am thankful to Dr. R. K. Abhilashi (Chancellor, Abhilashi University) and Dr. D. K.
