Cambridge is a world-leading centre for innovation in electronic patient and clinical trial data. This is underpinned by an extensive and vibrant community of clinicians, researchers, entrepreneurs, and commercial and public sector organisations. There is a recognised shortage of the appropriate technical and practical skills in the workforce to effectively utilise the opportunities presented by healthcare data. This Postgraduate Certificate has been designed to provide an introduction to the research skills, governance and innovation needed to work successfully with healthcare data. In addition students will be equipped with the skills necessary to understand how healthcare data relates to populations, health conditions and clinical outcomes and learn how to work with healthcare data in an effective manner.
