With AI in healthcare investments growing daily, combined with an unlimited pool of opportunities to radically improve healthcare using Big Data, there is no better time to be a data scientist in this field. We hear it’s the sexiest job of 2018 #justsaying. However, whilst the demand for world-class data scientists continues to grow, the speed of those entering and training in data science is not keeping pace; coupled with a widening gender gap. Indeed, roughly 50% of data science jobs will be unfilled by 2020. That’s A LOT of unfilled places people!
Join One HealthTech, who are being hosted by our lovely pals over at KPMG to discuss the opportunity and to identify individuals that are keen to explore the transition from Academia to Industry. Discussions will include how to make your next career move into health data science, or get an idea of how to even get started in all this health data science malarkey. With further detail being provided on methods of upskilling into data science, formal data science courses, Masters, self-taught, grad schemes, and on-the-job training.
Who should attend?
Are you working or studying in a health-related field and want to retrain/up-skill in data science, but find the transition difficult/daunting? Are you not working on the sort of health data problems you want? Or are you just looking to meet a lovely merry gang of like-minded health data scientists? If so, this is the event for you!
Expect to leave with a good understanding of the options available to you and importantly, a wider network of fellow health data science enthusiasts all tackling and loving the journey together!
We have 30 places available, so please sign up ASAP to avoid disappointment.
