PEDI M418. Application of Data Science to Clinical Medicine and Medical Research. 0 Credit Hours.

Data science, at the intersection of statistics and computer science, provides cutting edge tools for analyzing large data sets to provide predictive and causal models. These tools have been used extensively in the fields of econometrics and advertising (e.g. Google and Facebook); the application of data science to medicine is in its infancy, however, with the increasing availability of large clinical data sets, the opportunity to mine these sets for information has never been greater. While software engineers and applied mathematicians have the skills to use and develop these tools, they lack the content expertise needed to apply this knowledge to medicine. The purpose of this course is to provide medical students, graduate students, and medical researchers an opportunity to develop sufficient skills in modern data science to carryout research using large databases. It is assumed that the student has no training beyond introductory courses in statistics and/or epidemiology; no significant programming experience is required.
