Within “Big Data,” there’s a multidimensional data goldmine just waiting for collaborative research teams to enter and extract information that can change the world of health care. Many face the challenge and wonder how they can use that data to improve health and health care delivery.

If you’re looking for direction, the Big Data Coursework for Computational Medicine (BDC4CM) week can provide the GPS coordinates to get you there. Course will include in-depth lectures, case studies and hands-on training from renowned, multidisciplinary faculty.


When: July 13-18, 2015
Where: Rochester, Minnesota
Apply now.  The application deadline has been extended to March 31, 2015.

Fellowships include registration, housing, and some meals. Travel arrangements are the responsibility of individual attendees.

Co-hosted by Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota.
