Description

The MSc in Health Data Science is a programme designed to equip future health data analysts with the skills they need to interpret, analyse, assess, and evaluate health interventions, services, programmes, and policies. This is a joint programme between the LSE’s Department of Health Policy and the Department of Statistics.

As the health sector, already a major employment sector, continues to grow and as larger, more complex data sets become available, there is an increasing need for professionals with strong quantitative skills to evaluate health care interventions and outcomes, as well as health system performance. The MSc in Health Data Science is tailored to train those seeking to develop the statistical and computational skills necessary to become data science specialists in the health care, biopharmaceutical and medical technology sectors.
