I am a third year Pharmacy student currently studying in the University of Reading. I come from a more clinical background, mainly due to my course and present work experience, but do have a natural inclination towards Maths. This is why I have chosen to undertake work experience in health data science as it involves the use of data collected to make more informed decisions in the delivery of patient centred care. I hope to see first-hand how health data scientist are able to use technology at their disposal in making these decisions to boost healthcare quality and network with many people currently in the field.
