We’d like to extend a very warm welcome to our new students!
On Monday 3 October, The Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences welcomed its first cohort of students onto the MSc in Applied Digital Health.
With health services around the world facing major challenges in healthcare, we designed this Masters programme to equip students with unrivalled expertise to tackle post-pandemic healthcare and to critically engage with digital health technologies, exploring for example how we can use clinical informatics for better surveillance of care; harness electronic data to improve diagnosis and prognosis, and implement remote patient monitoring and digital care delivery to make a difference to health and care.
When asked about the success of launching the course and recruiting its first intake, Academic Director, Professor John Powell, commented, “We are delighted to welcome 16 students to the new MSc in Applied Digital Health. These 9 men and 7 women come from 12 different countries across Africa, Europe, Asia, North America and Australia. We are looking forward to teaching them and to their contributions over the next year of their full-time course."
Prior to the introductory week here at Oxford, Co-Director, Professor Catherine Pope shared an enthusiastic welcome: ‘This programme has a unique, very deliberate, and explicit commitment to thinking about digital tools from a socio-technical perspective. We want you to understand and learn about how people, organisations, society, and digital tools can change healthcare. I think we’ve assembled a dream team to help you explore and learn about applied digital health, and we invite you to play your part in the digital health revolution and improve health outcomes.”
We wish our students the very best for the coming months.
Have fun, be inspired, and stay curious.
