About this program
Medical Sciences Summer School: Data Science and AI in Health
Rapid advancements in data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) call for a new generation of clinicians and (clinical) scientists, who are able to develop and introduce new prediction models and treatment strategies in healthcare. Therefore, the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) organizes the new Summer School ‘Data Science and AI in Health’.
In the near future, data science and AI will cause major shifts in the way health research is conducted and care is provided. With a reported compound annual growth (CAGR) rate of 36% through 2025, healthcare data has one of the highest growing rates. These CAGR expectation rates make data science a powerful driver of innovation in all disciplines of healthcare (research).

The aim of this new Summer School is to introduce young, enthusiastic researchers to the principles of data science and AI in healthcare and clinical research. Participants will be introduced to various aspects of data science, such as setting up and implementing a project. This includes both the collection and cleaning of data and the practical conduct of an initial (machine learning) analysis of the collected data. The data science assignments will be executed in an online web environment (Jupyter Notebooks), in collaboration with one or more local partners like PACE Innovation & Connected Care (UMCG), Centre for Information and Technology – Data Science (UoG) and dHealth Lab (dhealth.nl) and one or more commercial partners.
