Professional Courses

The Farr Institute has developed a number of short courses across the UK designed to equip health data professionals with the skills required for analysing and interpreting complex datasets.

These courses are open to attendees from across research, academia, industry and healthcare. Varying in length, many are modular and can be built into a wider programme of continuing education and professional qualifications, focussing on the rapidly developing field of electronic health records research.
