Manchester Digital Epidemiology Summer School
July 17 - July 19
The Centre for Epidemiology Versus Arthritis, one of the Healtex partners, is hosting the Manchester Digital Epidemiology Summer School, which is an exciting 3-day course where participants will learn all about how to capture and use digital health data to support high-quality epidemiological research.
The programme covers opportunities, challenges and methods across a variety of data types: from data in electronic health records (including free-text data) to data collected through smartphones and wearable devices. An internationally renowned and multidisciplinary faculty will deliver interactive seminars on cutting-edge methods for collecting and analysing digital health data in the context of epidemiological studies. They will use real-life examples to demonstrate these methods in action.
The summer school is intended for clinical epidemiologists, health informaticians, health data scientists, and clinicians with an interest in epidemiology and/or data science. Delegates from academic, industry and other backgrounds are welcome.
