Course summary

Overview

The Applied Statistical Modelling and Health Informatics course has been created to deliver a skill set and knowledge base in “multimodal” and “big data” analysis techniques, which are a recognised scarcity within UK Life sciences. You will receive world-class training in core applied statistical methodology, machine learning and computational methodology, and you will have the opportunity to apply your skills to real-life settings facilitated by the world-leading Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience. The course will apply to a broad spectrum of graduates preparing for a career in medical statistics and health informatics, or professional methodologists and clinical researchers working in the private or public health sector who are interested in state-of-the-art technologies training from world-class experts. This course is also suitable if you are a graduate in/work in the fields of computer science, maths, physics, engineering and natural science, including psychology and medicine. The course will prepare participants for the ever-growing need for a sound scientific approach to processing information and generating knowledge in modern health services. Practical skills will be taught through applications to real-life settings in a world-leading research institution in mental health. Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip exit awards during this course.

Course detail

Our course is to meet the growing need for a graduate training course that focusses on methodological skills to respond to problems of “big data” of complexes diseases, which is underpinned by strong statistical methodology and real-world application.” There is an increasing demand for the acquisition, storage, retrieval and use of information within private and public sector institutions engaged in health research. The range of modern medical data is vast, from patient records, genetics, other omics and imaging data, to real-time measures of physiological responses from wearable sensors, smartphone social media use and environmental data. We will provide you with the necessary state-of-the-art statistical modelling and health informatics techniques to manage and evaluate this data. You will receive training in key methodological techniques underpinning “big data” acquisition, information retrieval and analysis using prediction modelling and theory driven analyses approaches. You will benefit from the teaching of world-renowned experts in the field, you will conduct an applied research project and link to statistical and health informatics research groups, such as the causal modelling group, precision medicine and statistical learning, measurement theory, health informatics and natural language processing groups in the Department of Biostatistics and Health Informatics. You will be part of a multi-professional cohort, bringing together diverse points of view on national and international modern data dilemmas. You will also have the unique opportunity to network and develop career opportunities. Our course combines training in core statistical, machine learning and computational methodology, beginning at an introductory level, with a range of optional modules covering more specialised knowledge in statistical modelling and health informatics. Each year you will normally take modules totalling 60 credits for the PGCert.
