We invite you to join us at the inaugural Data Science & Health 2020 Continuing Professional Development course on November 3, 2020.
This event is MOC1/Mainpro+ accredited and will be the first of a series of annual conferences on this topic. We are excited to launch this new forum, designed to address the needs of health care providers to help improve their understanding of current data science concepts in health care research, and how to optimally integrate data science and digital health into the delivery of care. Check out our event program for more details.
The Data Science & Health CPD course will be delivered in three parts:
All supporting lectures will be delivered through the online learning platform, Canvas, to allow self-paced learning and self-evaluation, as well as ongoing access to resources, discussion boards, and a community of learners. Participants will have 1-year access to course content and online presentations from leading UBC data scientists and health researchers beginning in October 2020.
