Teaching

  • PMIM01 Scientific Computing and Healthcare

    The module aims to raise the awareness of students about scientific computing in the field of health data science. It focuses on basic software development workflows, tools, and skills that health data scientists most often employ. Students will also learn about the professional context within which health data scientists operate. Module leader is Dan Thayer

  • PMIM02 Health Data Modelling

    Health data scientists are expected to work with diverse data sources. Modelling data encompasses setting up database models and analysing the data using statistical models. The objective of this module is to raise the awareness of students about the various processes of data modelling and the key operations involved in the data processing of large and diverse datasets. Module leader is Dr Joanne Demmler
