New Clinical Data Science Programme – Apply for a funded place with NSHCS

Health Education England has 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 programme will comprise of modules that can be taken as standalone CPD units and which can be combined into a 60 credit Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Data Science.

The full Postgraduate Certificate programme is due to go live in the autumn of 2023. However, the initial module of the programme is to be piloted this autumn and HEE will fully fund 15 places on the module.

The pilot module will be on Data Engineering – the foundational principles and practices that you need to have in place in order to use data for service improvement and patient benefit.


Applications for funded places on the pilot module will close on Monday 22 August 2022.
