Farr Short Courses 2018 at UCL Institute of Health Informatics

Published on: 1st March 2018

The UCL Institute of Health Informatics and The Farr Institute London are delighted to announce that booking is now open for our 2018 programme of short courses.

Running between 9 and 27 April, these modular one and two-day courses provide short, focussed, practical introductions to key topics in the use of electronic patient data in research.

These courses are intended for people from a wide range of backgrounds – including healthcare, epidemiology, biostatistics, health informatics, NHS IT, bioinformatics, genomics, and computer science – and at different career stages, from those considering an MSc or PhD to established researchers.

Each course addresses a source of data, a new or emerging analytical technique, or a topic of broader interest and relevance across health data science. The programme is led from UCL and the teaching teams also include senior academics from other top London universities as well as experts from the NHS and industry.

Places must be booked online and will be allocated “first come, first served”, so we recommend booking early! Additionally, “early-bird” discounts apply until early March.
