About the course:
The technical revolution enables us to analyse
large amounts of data in healthcare and research and continuously
increase our understanding of the complex factors that determine disease
risk and outcome. This holds great potential to support a change from
the one-size-fits-all paradigm to personalised or precision medicine.
The Nordic countries have a well-functioning data infrastructure, which
gives us the opportunity to be at the forefront of this revolution –
especially if many healthcare professionals and researchers understand
the potential. The course is developed by the University of Iceland and
the University of Copenhagen in collaboration with medical faculties
across the Nordic countries. It was initiated by Faculty leaders in the
Education Working Group of Nordic Medical Schools and received funding
from the Joint Committee of the Nordic Medical Research Councils
