The current model of healthcare delivery in the UK is subject to unprecedented challenges. An ageing population, the impact of lifestyle factors and increasing costs mean that the existing approaches have become unsustainable. This, coupled with a drive to deliver personalized medicine, presents an opportunity for a step change in healthcare delivery.

To do this we need to make best use of the health data we collect and to create a better understanding of the relationship between treatments, outcomes, patients and costs.  This requires individuals who understand the healthcare sector and medicine; how data is collected and analyzed, and how this can be communicated to influence various stakeholders ( Health Data Scientists (HDSs)).

Our postgraduate programme is aimed at those currently employed in the NHS, industry and/or academia, we are beginning to create a new breed of scientist able to work across all three sectors.

The programme will provide students with  the skills required to deal with the gathering and analysis of complex datasets as well as an understanding of the clinical, engineering, social, ethical, and management issues that surround them.
