SDRDS

Tackling data science challenges in health and healthcare

From medical images to laboratory results, hospitalization summaries and disease registries, the medical sector generates huge amounts of data. However, their potential remain largely untapped, in part due to a shortage of qualified IT personnel at the interface of computer and biomedical sciences. The RHHDS program, funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, aims at training a new generation of specialists capable of responsibly exploiting these data. This workforce will develop, in addition to a strong technical background, professional skills in

  • Communication
  • Management
  • Knowledge and technology transfer
  • Ethics and law
