While teaching the first part "Analyzing Patient Data" for the instructor checkout, we noted that the print function was never really explained. Since this is the first lesson in python, it would probably be good to add a short paragraph about the print function and especially that it accepts an arbitrary number of arguments in the very beginning.

I agree. There's a bit of explanation as 'print to screen', but while it makes perfect sense to experience programmers, it isn't intuitive for newbies.
