Data analyst training
Training the health data analysts of the future is a cornerstone of DPUK's work. From our flagship Datathon events to our new Spring and Autumn Academies, we are helping inspire a new generation of cohort analysts and equipping existing analysts with enhanced statistical skills.
DPUK Spring & Autumn Academies
DPUK has launched its all-new Spring Academy and Autumn Academy series of data analyst training events.
Aimed at those new to cohort data analysis, the Spring Academy is a week-long series of lectures, presentations and guided tutorials giving researchers an introduction to analysis techniques. Our expert line-up of presenters, lecturers and tutorial leaders explore topics including multi-modal analysis, mult-cohort projects, data standardisation, and linear models.
Aimed at more experienced data analysts, the Autumn Academy is a week-long series of expert lectures, presentations and group workshops giving researchers in-depth insight into cohort analysis techniques including linear/logistic regression, machine learning, survival analysis, latent growth curve models, and cross-lagged panel models.
DPUK Datathons are a key part of our data analyst training programme, placing researchers in multidisciplinary teams to generate valuable new findings in dementia research using cohorts in the DPUK Data Portal. Our next Datathon will take place between 24 June and 1 July 2022.
