SysMIC held an inter-DTP Workshop in Newcastle yesterday (19th April 2018).
29 SysMIC participants were in attendance from Newcastle, Liverpool, Durham, EastBio, Manchester, Dundee and DiMeN DTPs.
The next SysMIC Module 1 course will start on Monday 16th April 2018.
There are still some places available, so if you are interested in joining, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org, before 28th March 2018.
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
