University of Leeds: Data Science and Analytics for Health

Institution University of Leeds
Department School of Computing
Study type Taught


Our Data Science and Analytics for Health MRes degree provides a comprehensive training in the management, modelling and interpretation of health and healthcare data used by clinical, behavioural and organisational sources. These skills will enable you to extract valuable empirical evidence to better understand the causes of disease, and more accurately predict and evaluate health outcomes and health service needs.

The course draws on recent advances in information technology, data management, statistical modelling (for description/classification, causal inference and prediction), machine learning and artificial intelligence. It intends to equip health data scientists and health data analysts with the skills required to: harness the empirical insights available within large and varied data sources; and apply these to pressing clinical, social and organisational questions within the broad and varied context of health and healthcare services.

The programme is designed to enable you to develop both the technical and applied skills required for addressing real‐world challenges in real‐world health and healthcare contexts.

This course draws together:

  • established expertise in applied data science relevant to the statistical modelling of complex data and the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence to accelerate the application of modelling for insight and discovery through causal inference and prediction

  • key public and private sector partners with extensive experience of managing a range of complex health and healthcare data sources, and harnessing these to inform professional practice, service delivery, public policy and commercialization.
