Are you interested in how to use data generated by doctors, nurses, and the healthcare system to improve the care of future patients? If so, you may be a future clinical data scientist! This specialization provides learners with hands on experience in use of electronic health records and informatics tools to perform clinical data science. This series of six courses is designed to augment learner’s existing skills in statistics and programming to provide examples of specific challenges, tools, and appropriate interpretations of clinical data. By completing this specialization you will know how to: 1) understand electronic health record data types and structures, 2) deploy basic informatics methodologies on clinical data, 3) provide appropriate clinical and scientific interpretation of applied analyses, and 4) anticipate barriers in implementing informatics tools into complex clinical settings. You will demonstrate your mastery of these skills by completing practical application projects using real clinical data. This specialization is supported by our industry partnership with Google Cloud. Thanks to this support, all learners will have access to a fully hosted online data science computational environment for free! Please note that you must have access to a Google account (i.e., gmail account) to access the clinical data and computational environment.

How the Specialization Works

Take Courses

A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.

Hands-on Project

Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.

Earn a Certificate

When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
