I am planing to start teaching R to undergraduate medical students. I am looking for any material that can help in doing so. These students did not have any experience using R. Another question: Is Rstudio a good option?

Many thanks

I would recommend Roger Peng's Coursera course that is tailored to medical students.

Moreover, "An Introduction to Statistical Learning with Applications in R" by James et al. and "Applied Predictive Modeling" by Kuhn and Johnson are great introductory books.
