Health Data Science MSc

Health Data Science MSc

The current model of healthcare delivery in the UK is subject to unprecedented challenges. An ageing population, the impact of lifestyle factors and increasing costs mean that the existing approaches may become unsustainable. This, coupled with a drive towards personalised medicine, presents an opportunity for a step change in healthcare delivery. To do this, we need to make best use of the health data we collect and create a better understanding of the relationship between treatments, outcomes, patients and costs.

Health Data Science MSc

Health Data Science MSc

Healthcare, with an already established strong relationship with Information & Communication Technologies (ICT), is continuously expanding the knowledge forefront as new methods of acquiring data concerning the health of human beings are developed. Processing this data to extract valuable information about a population (epidemiological applications) or the individual (personalised healthcare applications) is the work of health data scientists. Their work has the potential to improve quality of life on a large scale. Swansea University is the first institution in the UK to offer this taught masters programme designed to develop the essential skills and knowledge required of the Health Data Scientist.
