Team Coders: Disease Progression Modelling

Dates: Begins 12th of June ends 23rd of June 2023, see details below

Venue: Online

Are you a healthcare professional or researcher interested in medical imaging and digital technology?

About this event

Would you like to learn Python and improve your programming in an exciting team-based project with support from experts and peers? Then the new Team Coders course is for you.

You will learn some basics about medical image analysis and applying cutting edge data science techniques to model the progression of diseases through a flexible, collaborative problem-solving activity. You will also gain skills for working in a multidisciplinary collaborative team.

Team Coders is a brand-new workshop provided by the UCL Academic Careers Office and the Health and Bioscience IDEAS training programme. All healthcare professionals and researchers are welcome - it will particularly benefit those who want to use medical imaging and data science more in their work.

Workshop details:

  • Dates and Times: 12th and 13th of June (Kickoff sessions, 13:00-16:00 on both days) and ends 23rd of June (Wrap up session, 13:00-15:00). Please note you must be able to attend all the sessions.
  • Venue: Online
  • Places: 16 places available
  • Eligibility: All healthcare professionals and researchers
  • Booking Fee: Free of charge during the pilot phase only, as we’re launch this new scheme.
  • Coding language: The workshop uses the computing language Python and a freely available platform that creates interactive coding documents called Jupyter notebooks.

Requirements and notes

Some introductory experience with programming languages such as Python or R is desirable. If you are new to Python, or want a refresher, then we would recommend going through some self-paced courses (see mini-site), or trying to complete, as much as you can from the notes of the Software Carpentry workshop - Introduction to Python. A week before the workshop we will release some notes in Python and we will ask for a pre-workshop preparation.

The project will consist of different notebooks that cover medical image analysis, data wrangling/visualisation, and disease progression modelling.

As a team, you will be working together to solve problems and syncing up your work so that all of the team members stay up to date. A pre-workshop document with further details will be provided to all participants ahead of the workshop to help you get ready.

For further detail, please see the course mini-site.
