Overview

Today, health data is measured in the trillions of gigabytes. It doubles every 75 days. Big data is a term used to describe data sets that are so large and complex, they can’t be managed or analysed using traditional methods.

In health, big data includes the:

  • millions of records generated routinely by health services
  • real-time clinical data captured at the point-of-care
  • genomic and imaging data produced in research and clinical settings
  • health-related data generated by the population at large through wearable devices and social media.

The Master of Science in Health Data Science will prepare you to find the right data, unlock hidden insights and use this information to better support clinical care, inform health policy and improve population health. This degree covers the entire pipeline from comprehension of complex health issues through to data wrangling and management, machine learning, data analytics, data modelling and data communication.

Key features

  • Industry relevant degree
    We designed this program in response to a significant and growing gap in the global health workforce: skilled data scientists who understand the context of health and can apply data analytics to drive health improvement. In this program, you’ll be exposed to real-world problems and learn the latest analytical methodologies to derive solutions.
  • Suited to a wide range of backgrounds
    This degree is suitable for students who are starting out in the field and those already working within it who want to upskill. Whether you’re a statistician who wants to build on your current skills, a clinician or nurse who wants to improve the quality of care received by your patients, or a keen programmer looking to convert your on-the-job experience into a formal qualification, this program welcomes students from a wide range of backgrounds.

  • Flexible delivery
    This degree can be completed full-time or part-time, on-campus or fully online. Content is delivered through a combination of online readings, expert guest lectures and practical hands-on tutorials. Lectures are followed by exercises, which reinforce the learning and programming skills covered in the tutorials.

Why study this degree at UNSW?

Study the first postgraduate degree in health data science
Our master’s degree, graduate diploma and graduate certificate in health data science are pioneering programs that examine data-driven solutions to complex health problems. At UNSW, we’re leading this new approach to healthcare.

Learn within a world-leading research and teaching institute
This degree is delivered by theCentre for Big Data Research in Health (CBDRH)– the leading Australian and international hub for health research using big data. The CBDRH brings together an interdisciplinary team of staff, who have world-leading expertise in managing, manipulating, analysing and visualising health big data. Using large-scale electronic data than spans the biomedical, clinical and health services domains, the CBDRH is transforming knowledge from data into practical applications within health.

Connect with staff and students in a dynamic learning environment
In some courses, a flipped classroom approach is used, where you’ll learn theory from short online videos and use face-to-face or online sessions to apply knowledge, practice skills and engage in peer-to-peer learning. A major feature of our student-centric learning experience is the online community, where you can interact with your peers and instructors from diverse backgrounds and workplaces.

Future careers

The role of a health data scientist is dynamic and always evolving as their work spans across any of the multiple stages of the health data pipeline. From designing and leading research studies and analysing data, through to building machine learning processes to understand complex health issues, a health data scientist’s work draws on a multiplicity of skills.

Because it’s a profession in its early development stages, new roles and opportunities in this sector are being created all the time. The health data scientist may, for example, manage a team of data analysts to work out processes to gather data, assess how to model the data or devise ways to implement health policy change based on the outcomes of their studies and findings.

There is growing demand within the public and private health sector, both in Australia and globally, for professionals with specialised interdisciplinary skills in health data science. This degree could lead to a career in:

  • government departments of health (national, state or local)
  • hospitals
  • universities and research institutes
  • pharmaceutical companies
  • health insurance companies 
  • private data analytics consultancies.
