Big Data in Healthcare: Exploring Emerging Roles

Class Details

Join us for a 6-week course that helps health sciences librarians understand the issues of big data in clinical outcomes and what roles health sciences librarians can take on in this service area. We'll start with an overview of data science and then learn about big data from a systems perspective, dig into how big data impacts patients and researchers, think about the role of librarians in supporting big data initiatives, and finish with an opportunity for you to develop an action plan based on course content.

The class will be taught via Moodle and includes short readings, videos, and activities. This class has been approved for 6 hours of continuing education credits by the Medical Library Association.

Registration is limited to 50 participants
