Who should take part in this course?

Health researchers with very little to no experience in the analysis of population health data, and a keen interest in developing the skills necessary to do so.

For example:

  • Early Career Researchers with a background in medicine, research or informatics
  • Those working in academia, the NHS or Medical research charities
  • Those who know SPSS but would like to learn R (something different and free to access)
  • Those wishing to learn about the tools and techniques in analysing big health care data.


The course costs £100 which includes two days of teaching and refreshments/lunch.
