The Clinician Coders Programme is based on the successful SysMIC online course in maths and computing for biomedical scientists.
The Clinician Coders programme will enable clinical academics to effectively use data science to complement their existing research. The programme combines e-learning in basic informatics with face-to-face problem solving sessions to cement learning and foster multidisciplinary working.
All of the course materials are based on real clinical research data used with permission from academic and private sector partners. We aim to inspire and excite students by using real data and solving real problems.
This course will also help participants to:
- Understand the basics of data science and coding;
- Apply learning to research;
- Separate yourself from the pack in your next fellowship application;
- Enhance existing collaborations or start new ones;
- Align with funders’ interests in data science.
The latest SysMIC Module 1 cohort started in November 2017 with 193 participants
Participants came from 4 separate Medical Research Councils, 11 separate Doctoral Training Partnerships, The Francis Crick Institute and independent participants.
The next SysMIC Module 1 cohort will start in the spring. Please register your interest or send any queries to us at email@example.com
Network Medicine: A Clinician Coders Workshop at UCL
18 September 2017
ParoXysmic and the UCL Academic Careers Office ran a Clinician Coders workshop on Network Medicine for 20 UCL clinical academic trainees on 18 September 2017. The Workshop combined web-based training materials on a bespoke eLearning Environment and covered MATLAB programming with face-to-face problem solving sesions.
Gerold Baier will be presenting at the HEA Annual Conference (STEM Strand Programme) on 6th July 2017.
The talk entitled ‘Training of Higher Education eTeachers in the 21st Century will be presented from 2:30-3pm.

The second self funded SysMIC cohort is underway!
We would like to welcome participants from The Francis Crick Institute and Oxford DTP.
A third of participants are independent students who contacted us directly to enrol.
The Francis Crick Institute, Oxford University, Kings College London, Manchester University and University College London have enrolled students on the spring 2017 SysMIC Module 1 cohort.
