The Department of Clinical & Experimental Medicine will be hosting its fifth annual health informatics summer school from Monday 26 June to Friday 30 June This full time 5 day intensive short course is for health care professionals, researchers and analysts wanting to work with routine health data to measure quality, research and improve outcomes.
A deep understanding of health informatics is increasingly recognised as essential for those seeking to advance their careers within the health sector. Informatics is one of the fastest growing specialisms within the health sector. At its core the insight gained from the analysis of relevant, reliable and timely information enables clinicians, researchers, managers and commissioners to make informed decisions that lead to improved outcomes. Taught by highly regarded experts in the field the course will teach analytical techniques and tools on real world scenarios to generate practical insight and embed learning.
There are no entry requirements and the course is suitable and flexible enough to accommodate those with little or no statistical experience looking to find pragmatic ways of using data as well as those advanced in analytics seeking to enhance their technical skills.
The course is internationally relevant and has attracted students from Canada, the Middle East, Caribbean, and across Europe, though we use UK centric data in our case studies
