Hi, and welcome.

I had a quick look and came across:
but you'll have to see how valuable a resource this is.

Secondly, you might want to try looking yourself.  I have come across
specific medical projects, but if you start looking for yourself now,
this will stand you in better stead later on.  What follows are some
general sources.


1) System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager
Use the search facility and tinker with that a bit.

2) Take a look at some of the following links: 

3) The final link is something I'm gradually working on whenever I've
got some spare time (any assistance would be very welcome).  When you
find something and it's not included there, add it to this page, or
email me the details and screenshot(s) and I'll stick it up.

4) Lurk around the Ubuntu Forums (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/), and
search for the discussions with people outlining their favourite
software (and for medical discussions, if any).  Also take a look at the
Ubuntu documentation pages.

5) Don't forget that there may be software available that isn't
available in the Ubuntu repositories.  Again, you'll have to look into
how to install these packages.

Good luck, and remember: when you get more knowledgeable, try to
contribute something for all this free software you're getting.  Your
particular field may need strengthening.  Don't forget, if the people
who make our software hadn't contributed, we wouldn't be using it.

All the best.
