Biomedical Informatics Data Science for Health Summer Program

Overview

Biomedics Banner Image

Co-taught by Brian E. Chapman, Ph.D. and Wendy W. Chapman, Ph.D. the University of Utah Department of Biomedical Informatics Boot Camp introduces participants with little or no experience in programming, statistics, or scientific computing to the foundations of biomedical data science. Working in small teams of two or three, students learn foundational data science skills by creating Python computer programs that analyze biological and health-care case studies. What data is created and how that data can be used will guide how we analyze our cases. Students also examine how that data can be represented, visualized, and analyzed to address a biological or healthcare challenge. The course uses a combination of lectures, coding demonstrations, class discussions, large and small group programming exercises, seminars, code reviews, and visualization gallery strolls.
