About the course

Are you looking to move into or expand your knowledge of healthcare data analytics? Our Postgraduate Certificate in Health Data Science may be for you. 

Upskill to meet the growing need for people with the skills to derive insights from health data.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Health Data Science is delivered online and designed to be flexible to fit around your working life. You will be taught by an interdisciplinary team of international experts at The University of Manchester, who work with health systems around the world in their use of data.

Our course units in Health Data Science are specifically designed to enhance and bring together your technical, modelling and contextual skills in order to be a successful health data scientist.

The importance of data in health systems is growing and there is no better illustration of this than the COVID pandemic, where collecting, presenting, understanding and acting on data has driven an international response to this crisis. The demand across healthcare for skilled data scientists has never been greater.

Our aim is for you to be able to enhance your knowledge around reporting, governance of patient data, statistical analysis and data management, so you can help design treatments and allocate resources based on analysis of health and related data.

This course is delivered using real-life case studies provided by the Health eResearch Centre. Whilst continuing to work, you’ll advance your understanding of the importance of the patient and governance surrounding working in the healthcare environment.

Online doesn’t mean you’ll be studying alone. You’ll have great opportunities to interact and collaborate with peers and academics through our highly interactive teaching model involving group work, sessions with your tutor and informal support group chats, in addition to a comprehensive virtual learning environment.
