Impact with Data Science in your community?

In Healthcare every decision matters. With better access to, and use of, relevant data we will be able to accelerate our learning capacity. Within organisations, but also between organisations. Breaking silo’s and democratizing data for common purposes. Data science is one of the key ingredients to actually know what works for whom. As a pionieer in Data Science for Health you will explore new technologies, new possibilities and a new ecosystem of fellow pionieers.

Teaching in Covid times …

We’ve created a welcoming and warm online teaching environment, which we use as long as the covid situation prevents classroom teaching. Instructors and teaching technologies are adjusted to online teaching. We miss the friendly and inspirational atmosphere of our historic campus, but the teaching effectiveness of online course matches that of classroom teaching!
