Clinical Data Science Programme: Applications now open

Home 9 Articles 9 Clinical Data Science Programme: Applications now open

HEE have commissioned the University of Manchester to develop a flexible, postgraduate Clinical Data Science Programme in collaboration with the National School of Healthcare Science.

The Clinical Data Science Programme aims to empower healthcare professionals to apply data science in practice and translate data into patient benefit.

The course is being designed to help healthcare professionals

  • build digital, data capabilities and confidence;
  • learn to work better with data centric professionals on digital transformation and research projects;
  • develop data-based solutions to clinical problems;
  • develop fundamental data science skills for processing, analysing and communicating with data.

The programme will be available for full-time (over 1 year) and part-time (over 2 years) delivery, and all units will be available as individual CPD units. Applications for the CPD units will open soon, and the University of Manchester website will be updated once details are available.

The PgCert in Clinical Data Science offers blended teaching that will provide a rich mixture of online and face-to-face learning opportunities.

It is expected that Health Education England (HEE) will fully fund a significant number of places on the PgCert. Details will be added on the website once they become available. Those wishing to be considered for a funded place will need to submit an application to both the University and HEE by Sunday 16 April 2023. Applications to the University will remain open after this date for those interested in the course who may be self-funded, funded through other means or not eligible for the HEE funding.

Find out more about the programme, and about how to apply for the PgCert in Clinical Data Science, on the University of Manchester website.

You can also get in touch with the programme’s Project Manager, Andreea Chirvase on if there are any questions.
