Using Big Data to improve individual and population health
The use of large, complex, and varied data sets in clinical care and biomedical research presents significant opportunity. There is a great need for professionals who can manage, integrate, analyze, and interpret data to make recommendations that accelerate research, improve clinical care, or shape public policy.
A pragmatic career step
Increasingly sophisticated data comes from electronic health records (EHR), clinical trials, cohort studies, and geo-mapped incidence information for a variety of diseases. Our program will equip you to work with and integrate these and other diverse sources. We also emphasize the professional skills needed to collaborate with, manage, and/or lead cross-disciplinary teams. You will gain the grounding and education required to define thoughtful inquiries, apply sophisticated computational approaches, interpret results, and offer informed advice.
Our students are prepared to serve in a variety of roles from designing studies, integrating large complex data sets, analyzing data, managing projects and teams, leading process improvement in clinical settings, or advancing research that impacts prevention and treatment. They find that our program is an important step supporting career growth in academia, hospitals/health systems, industry, or government.
