About

This Health Data Science programme from University College London (UCL) covers computational and statistical methods as applied to problems in data-intensive medical research.

Overview

As part of this Health Data Science programme from University College London (UCL), 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.

Careers

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.
