Bitesize courses for all health data scientists

In early 2021 HDR UK plans to start rolling out a suite of short and micro online courses to help health data scientists add to their skills and knowledge. These will address immediate priories like safe working with sensitive data, but are part of a wider programme to establish a readily-accessible, high quality national CPD programme.

HDR UK is working collaboratively with the NHS, industry and academic partners to create a programme that will meet the needs of health data scientists working in all settings – including industry, healthcare and academia.

The result will be an extensive catalogue of courses, events and other learning activities which are carefully curated to provide the competencies needed for many different career pathways, from discovery research through to applied clinical research. We believe this is vital so that individual scientists can progress in their own careers and to accelerate the safe, standardised and sustainable development of the entire sector.

“We want the UK to be a world leader in health data science. Making sure that everyone in the field can continually update their skills and knowledge is crucial to this goal.”
