- Thursday 11 and Friday 12 June: Microsoft training
- Monday 15 and Tuesday 16 June: Datathon days
In partnership with Microsoft for Healthcare, Microsoft Education and MyScoreIT, DHCRC is running an online datathon. Basically, in small teams, academia and industry will come together virtually around a MyScoreIT dataset. During this intensive, multi-day format, participants will learn new skills, solve industry-based problems and produce practical, real-world outcomes.
During the datathon, teams will answer real questions from clinical practice posed by MyScoreIT, troubleshoot relevant health management challenges, and produce data analysis tools and models that can be readily applied to produce clinical evidence and support decision making.
Employees with data capabilities are highly sought-after in the health sector and developing these skills has never been more relevant for degree completion, career progression and employability. This datathon is not only an opportunity to upskill but a chance to collaborate and learn alongside those from multiple disciplines and professions and across career stages.
