Farr Institute London Short Courses


Harnessing Electronic Health Records for Research

An intensive programme of short courses 9-27 April 2018

2018 again sees the return of our unique programme of inter-related one- and two-day courses in the rapidly developing field of electronic health records research, spanning a wide range of applications in basic and applied health research.

Our courses are entirely modular to allow individuals to select those most relevant to their research and learning needs.

What can I learn?

These courses address the ‘why?’, the ‘what?’ and the ‘how?’ of EHR research and critically evaluate scientific opportunities and challenges, in what is being proposed as a new paradigm in medical research.

Taught by internationally recognised faculty, they span data-intensive biomedical research across diverse forms of EHR (nationally available data from primary and secondary care), regional data in hospital informatics, as well as applied EHR research.

Who are these courses for?

The courses are intended for people from a wide range of backgrounds - including health care, epidemiology, biostatistics, health informatics, NHS IT, bioinformatics, genomics and computer science - and at different career stages, from those thinking of doing an MSc or PhD to established researchers.

Where is the venue?

The programme will be delivered in central London at the UCL IHI/Farr Institute London, 222 Euston Road, London NW1 2DA between 9 and 27 April 2018.
