Course details

The Master of Data Science (Health) shares a common core with the other Master of Data Science programmes and will provide graduates with quantitative skills required for the practical analysis of health data. Health is a large and growing sector in the economy, and effective use of data is essential for improving clinical care for individual patients as well as overall public health. While generic data science skills are useful for Health Data Scientists, health data often have special characteristics (for instance, patient data or clinical metrics) which also require specialised techniques for collection, analysis, and management. This programme includes modules about using data for clinical and public health decisions, relevant modelling techniques such as survival and epidemiological methods, and also addresses questions such as governance and privacy. Learn more with this program in Master of Data Science (Health) from Durham University .
