Future Leaders in Health Data Science


The Farr Institute of Health Informatics Research has launched a two year residential and network based mentorship and career development programme for mid-career, independent researchers. 

Programme Overview 

The formal programme lasts for two years with an annual residential meeting, allowing participants to explore and develop the qualities and skills required for leadership in the field of health data science research. Throughout, participants will identify their individual learning needs, build peer learning groups and establish programmes of collaboration. Mentorship will be provided by The Farr Institute’s directors and other senior leaders in health data science with the second residential course providing access to leadership training. Cohort members will undertake visits to other institutions to build collaborations, further research training and develop international networks. It is expected that cohorts will maintain relationships and will have the option to return to additional residential meetings with future groups of participants after the first 2 years. The programme has an annual recruitment round and accepts 10-12 applicants each year from international Institutions.

Applications for this opportunity are open 5th September - 5th November 2016. For more information on how to apply, please click here.
