Health Data Science MSc
کالج دانشگاهی لندن
This programme covers computational and statistical methods as applied to problems in data-intensive medical research. As part of this programme, you will gain an understanding of techniques that are transforming medical research and creating exciting new commercial opportunities. You will learn how to link and analyse large complex datasets. You will also design and carry out complex and innovative clinical research studies that take advantage of the increasing amount of available data about the health, behaviour and genetic make-up of small and large populations. The programme draws on a range of areas, including epidemiology, computer science, statistics and other fields, such as genetics.
Today, some of the most exciting, stimulating and productive research is carried out using large collections of data acquired in big collaborative endeavours or major public or private initiatives. As a student on this programme, we will work with you to develop your passion and interest in this area of research. You will gain skills for a career as an entrepreneur, scientist or manager, working in industry, academia or healthcare.
The programme is designed to meet a need, identified by the funders of health research and by a number of industrial organisations and healthcare agencies, for training in the creation, management and analysis of large datasets. This programme is practical, cross-disciplinary and closely linked to cutting-edge research and practice at UCL and UCL’s partner organisations. Data science is a rapidly growing field of employment at the moment and employers recruiting in health data science include government agencies, technology companies, consulting and research firms as well as scientific organisations. A number of employers - IQVIA, Roche, AstraZeneca and Public Health England - are supporting the programme in different ways, including providing paid internships to selected students.
Optional qualificationsThis degree is also available as a PG Diploma and a PG Certificate with fees set accordingly.
