Manchester Digital Epidemiology Summer School

Online event

The programme covers opportunities, challenges and methods across a variety of data types: from electronic health records to data collected through smartphones and wearable devices. An internationally renowned and multidisciplinary faculty from the University of Manchester and University of Toronto, plus several external faculty members, will deliver a series of online interactive workshops on:

  • Day 1: Routinely collected health data
  • Day 2: Patient-generated data using smartphones
  • Day 3: Sensor data and other passively collected data

Each day will follow the same format of:

  • Short lecture to introduce the day’s topic (available to watch in advance)
  • Four parallel practical sessions. Delegates will have the opportunity to join three of the four possible one-hour sessions (limited spaces, delegates will be granted on a first-come-first-serve basis)
  • A keynote lecture that draws together learning from the day’s workshops.
  • Networking opportunity for all delegates
